According to this report on the BBC, Lembit Opik now seems very likely to stand as Lib Dem candidate to be London mayor.
Using phrases like "I think I might go and have a chat with the boss to see what's going on. The momentum seems to be developing a life of its own."
"Me, Boris and Ken would be a splendid contest. It would get a lot of interest and get the public voting,"
Shows that it is more likely to happen than not.
We just better all hope that he does not get his girlfriend to do the campaign song !
Update - And now he says he won't stand after all.
