So what has Lembit Opik done?


I gather, from reading other people's blogs, that Lembit Opik has split with Sian Lloyd, the ITV weather girl (I always thought she looked a bit odd, but that's my personal preference), and is now dating one of the "Cheeky Girls".

I'm not quite sure what Lembit has done so wrong. At least Lembit split up from Sian before they got married, unlike certain Tory MP's who have been exposed recently to be either having affairs whilst their wives undergo cancer treatment or running off and leaving their wives for their male interior designer.

It is a shame that Sian got hurt in this whole episode, but she must have have done well from telling her story to the papers. I just hope for Lembit's sake that he is going out with the more attractive (less scary) Cheeky Girl (the one who usually stands on the left).

Oh, agreed, Lembit is something of an odditty in that his jaw looks like it belongs to another person and is not properly joined to the top part of his face.

Even with Sian Lloyd, he'd done well for himself, but with a cheeky girl, I guess it proves that power really is an aphrodisiac !

He is just showing a warm welcome to the new members of the EU family.

Why are you so defensive - nobody has tried to use this against the LDs (have they?!?). This is a personal issue and should stay as such - Opik is no better or worse than dozens of other MPs in this respect, from all sides of the house.

I don't feel I was being defensive. To be honest, I don't have particularly high regard for Lembit compared to other Lib Dems anyway. His cronyism towards Mark Oaten twelve months ago said it all for me.

Nich, you call it cronyism, others might call it loyalty...!

It depends what you call loyalty. he showed loyalty to Oaten whilst Oaten , in my opinion and to my knowledge, acted against Kennedy behind the scenes whilst appearing "loyal" publicly. This is not a virtue to be applauded.

On Wikipedia:

In December 2006 it was revealed that the relationship had broken down, as Lloyd became more frustrated with Opik's celebrity lifestyle and heavy Westminster drinking culture, and he had become invloved with 24 year old Gabriela Irimia of the Cheeky Girls pop group.

MP *celebs* are something of a new abomination. It was only ever a matter of time before we saw one dating a teeny bopper pop-star half his age. Ugh frankly.
