Having last week raised the prospect of taking Boris’ buffoon act to the Nth degree Lembit Opik has announced that he will stand for Mayor of London “if London wants it and Lib Dems want it”. The former Montgomeryshire MP and columnist for newstand pornographers the Daily Sport* told BBC Breakfast this morning:
“I’m potentially standing for mayor of London after one or two senior Lib Dem MPs in London suggested it … I don’t know for sure if it’s a viable campaign, we’re trying to get a manifesto together … What a great media opportunity for [the press] if you have three colourful characters running for mayor.” – Lembit Opik
