Why I support Huhne over Campbell

  1. Chris Huhne has more hair than Menzies Campbell.
  2. Chris Huhne is more intelligent than Menzies Campbell.
  3. Chris Huhne went to the same school as me.

This is all a bit trivial, granted. But the important decision is the one I explained in my long and serious post - why it is important that the next Liberal Democrat leader be someone who emphasises hard thinking about policy more and campaigning less. I will be voting for Campbell second preference, and it seems that the vast majority of Campbell and Huhne supporters will be swapping preferences.

    Are you seriously suggesting that a Queens Counsel and leading member of the Scottish criminal bar is less intelligent than an economist?

    If looks had anything to do with electoral success, how did Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon make it?

    Have you noticed that only two of our 62 MPs are conspicuously "working-class" - Mike Hancock and Bob Russell?

    If we're to have street-cred in Labour areas, we need one or two more (and I mean Chesterfield Labour rather than Muswell Hill Labour).
