Things will hot up for Ming

I notice elsewhere on the Lib Dem blogosphere that Ming rashly agreed to give up his petrol-guzzling Jaguar classis car in response to a question on Sky TV put by a Simon Hughes supporter.

I wonder whether the problem here, and with Ming’s difficult first performance at prime minister’s question time, is that he has become used to being treated by interviewers and opponents with the deference that is afforded to elder statesmen. If he becomes leader, he will find the questioning becomes more searching and people will be after his scalp.
