New poll: who gave Ming the final push?

Well, the newspaper front pages assert there’s no doubt who is responsible for the downfall of Ming Campbell: Lib Dem ‘plotters’. Which coming from newspapers which have constantly pilloried Ming simply for being in his 60s, and have blown up his light-hearted asides as gaffes, seems to me like breathtaking hypocrisy.

But over to you: who do you think gave Ming the final push? Was it:

– The media;
– The ‘young turks’;
– The bloggers;
– Ming himself;
– The polls;
– Brown and Cameron?

To vote, see the poll in the right-hand column.

Here are the results of the previous LDV poll…

Who do you think enjoyed the best Lib Dem conference this year?

• Nick Clegg: 26% (87)
• Chris Huhne: 21% (70)
• Ming Campbell: 20% (67)
• Lady Elspeth: 16% (53)
• Lynne Featherstone: 10% (35)
• Sarah Teather: 8% (28)

Total Votes : 340

  • I think it was Simon Hughes and friends. To which category he will fit? He isn’t a “Young Turk”.

  • Vincent Talleyrand, obviously.

    Can I be the first person to post the location of a ‘Nick Clegg for Lib Dem leader’ Facebook group?
