Think I heard something about Cable retiring at the next election.
all relative when you talk about safe seats I suppose, especially in this current political climate!
Orkney and Shetland is the only constituency in the country that the Lib Dems have consistently held since before 1997.
Next safest would be Carshalton, which Tom Brake has held for the LibDems since 1997, but he's still fairly young so can't see him stepping aside.
Suppose Umunna might be competitive in Twickenham if Vince Cable retired, but Cable himself lost it in 2015 so far from safe.
came up just at the moment the background image showed a large ship with a smaller boat pulling up alongside it (the Iran oil tankers story). I'd like to think this was deliberate.
I see he's currently desperately looking for a safe Lib Dem seat to be parachuted into. Obviously, he'd love it, really love it, if he could stand in Streatham. But he'd lose his seat, erm sorry, "has to do what is best for the party".
Just for the fun of it.
