A Blind Date With Lembit Opik
If you want a lighthearted break from the breaking news, have a listen to this 20 minute clip from Richard Bacon's programme this afternoon. I took part in Political Blind Date with Lembit Opik and Lance Price. They even played the Blind Date music and provided Graham, for the quick reminder. Lembit was playing Nick Clegg, I ws playing David Cameron and Lance Price was playing Gordon Brown. Lance and I were tasked with wooing Lembit into a coalition. Did I succeed? Will you hear me impersonating William Hague?

Incidentally, Lembit told me that he had no idea he was going to lose until an hour before the count finished. He's clearly still in shock but is trying to cope with his loss in the best way he can. He appeared on HIGNFY only seven hours after his result was announced, and put in an excellent performance.
