So who wants to be Mayor of London.

Since I thought that I might be interested in standing at the next General Election, I have suspended any comment on the activities of Montgomeryshire's current MP. But I cannot let pass today's utterly ridiculous story about him running for London Mayor. I couldn't believe it when journalists started telephoning me to comment on this 'hot' news. I didn't say anything to the media, because I didn't want to be quoted in tomorrow's papers, seeming churlish - but I didn't believe a word of it. I can say what I like on my blog.

My immediate instinct was that Lembit had started the rumour himself - simply so that he could then rule it out, declaring an eternal loyalty to Montgomeryshire. Of course, I have no way of knowing if this is the case, but the immediate prediction that I made duly came to pass. What I said was that there was no way Lembit could be the candidate and represent Montgomeryshire, 200 miles away. And that the rumour would probably have been started by one of his mates - and that he would wait long enough for the story to run on the news, and then deny his interest. It was a complete non story. At least the TV and radio that I've tuned into has dropped the story like a hot brick. Quite right too.

More likely that someone floated the idea and Lembit loved it. "I'm going to see the boss..." etc and then Ming or someone else that he was,yet again, being a total prat.
Read his quotes Glyn...he was going for it, gagging for it, but then someone on the top side of the glass coffee table....

To be fair Glyn, Lembit does shy away from publicity and it was probably beyond his control that this didn't escape the media's attention ;>D

Very sneeky if true....also quite cleaver. Looks like the gloves are off already Glyn.

I don't know if it was true - but I thought so, as soon as I heard the rumour. But it didn't bother me at all - because I thought the photograph didn't help his cause.

Yes he was going for it, but I am sure that he is being pulled into line
