The sad and puzzling end of Mark Oaten

Not only has Mr Oaten failed to secure the support of his fellow MP's - hardly surprising given his right of center views - but he now has been forced to reveal a skeleton in his cupboard.

Firstly its a sad business to see any person brought down by personal weakness - if only because we all fear that we one day might make a mistake - there but for the grace of God go I ... etc etc..

But given that he knew the details how could he have expected to survive as Lib Dem leader ? Its a question that worth pondering, what possible explanation could there be ? Odd things are going on with the Lib Dens. Strange donations - a leader who everyone must have known needed to go and now someone who knew they were doomed standing for the leadership - which would certainly destroy them.

What's going on ?
