Well, following last night’s posting about Steve Webb, it seems that he has followed reasoning quite similar to my own in making his announcement today that he won’t be running, and indeed that he will instead be backing Nick Clegg.
Also to be noted is the Guardian’s report, which includes the following little snippet down the bottom:
Ms Goldsworthy, the 29-year-old MP for Falmouth and Camborne, felt moved to announce on her Facebook page that she wasn’t standing.
Since I haven’t added her as a friend, and since she seems not to have her profile visible to all (an unusual decision for an MP, but fair enough), I will have to take the Guardian’s word for it.
So it’s looking increasingly as though it’s just Nick vs Chris. Ho hum. That’ll be straightforward, then…
