Oaten gets his

This evening, the death of Mark Oaten's political career was announced. It had been kept on life support for the past few months, but it was too weak to survive and was finally put out of our misery today. No flowers, by request.

By the way, I believe that Mr Oaten was being advised on his comeback by the same people who are advising Ming on relaunching his leadership.

Oh dear.

What do you mean by 'Oh dear'? I would expect you to be rejoicing over the fact that bad news for the LibDems means attention is temporarily diverted from rotten timbers in The Good Ship Tony.

One can only take the news about Oaten and Campbell's advisors as meaning a) that Campbell will also depart shortly - which can only be bad news for Labour, or b) that incompetent advice will continue to guide Ming - which can only be good news for Labour.

So which is it, and why the Oh, Dear'?

I confess to a degree of schadenfreude at the trials and tribulations of the Ming Dynasty.

The 'oh dear' is tongue in cheek.

Which may not be the best term to use in any post involving Mr Oaten
