As the Minger is apparently on the verge of relaunching his leadership again (how many times has he done that in just three months), news reaches us that the Macchiavelli of the Liberal Democrats, Lord Tim Razzall has been forced out of his post as head of campaigns and communications after a very poor performance in the local elections (a net gain of two councillors across the country). This is another mistake by the floundering Liberal Democrats - they are getting rid of a very effective operator, although as he was close to Chuckles, he'd probably had enough of the creeping incompetence starting to affect the previously slick machine. It will get even worse when the demand to repay the £2.4 million from their dodgy donor lands on the doormat of whoever is in charge at the time.
And with the Bromley and Chislehurst and Blaenau Gwent byelections only a few weeks away, they can ill-afford this change. As Yellow Peril (first with this story) notes, can Chris Rennard survive?
