Nick Clegg, the poster-boy for the right wing of the party, said that Ming was qualified to lead -
'He has also got resilience, and I knew that, but I'm glad that came out in the campaign. Just look at what was thrown at him in the last few weeks.'
Apart from the self-inflicted damage of his poor public speaking performances, I'm not aware of anything being flung at Ming in the past few weeks. There was far worse hurled at Huhne and Hughes (and we won't discuss what was thrown at Oaten). Ming got off VERY lightly.
William Hill have already opened a book on how long Ming will last in the job.
