Iain Macwhirter's piece for the Guardian's CiF certainly makes you stop and think. He accuses the Lib Dems of mind-blowing political incompetence and argues that they really now are the 'stupid party.' Examine the evidence:
1. Driven to the margins of political influence in both Scotland and Wales
2. Guilty of silly, basic political errors at Westminster
3. 'Led' by a decent enough man but one who is simply not up to the job.
What next for the Lib Dems? Will Ming last to Christmas?
