Lembit Opik is a joke

Lembit Opik's "Citizen Lem" video is meant to promote his bid to become London mayor next year. It is meant in jest but unfortunately the joke is on and not with Lem.

Citizen Lem from Mancha Productions on Vimeo.

The Lib Dems have never been serious contenders in any of the London mayoral elections and Lembit's "bid" symbolises a party lurching from disaster to laughing stock.

Mark Pack points out that no Lib Dem London assembly members, council leaders or MPs are backing the bid. That doesn't mean much though as there are only three Lib Dem assembly members, two council leaders and seven MPs after poor results for the party in 2010.

Before propping up the Tories nationally the Lib Dems already lost support across London. Before last year's election Lembit could have solicited support from eight council leaders. Give it another year after the regional elections on Soctland and Wales, locals in England and the London assembly elections and we'll see how much is left for the Lib Dems.

Poor Lembit. He makes great video, just not quite on topic.

I agree wholeheartedly. He is such an insecure Man, he has to bolster himself with ridiculous pictures of him being propped up by media hungry females. Sian Lloyd was right. He is a narcisstic, delusional fool. Go away Lembit. You are an embarrassment.
