Cynical...

So, Lembit and his cheeky girl may be in the process of splitting up. How sad. Tragic even. If it is true, then fair play to her for bringing things to an end. Maybe, just maybe, Lembit will have time now to be an MP and start represeting his constituents properly? Either that, or he'll find another Z list 'celebrity' girlfriend, maybe a former Big Brother contestant, and continue along the same path.

However, I'm not quite sure to believe the rumours about a split. After all, the cheeky girls are promoting their living tv programme at the moment. And what better way to do that than to hit the tabloids? Hmmm...

I'd actually place a bet on the fact that Lembit and her will be in Hello or Ok magazine in the next week or two declaring that they're back together and even more in love. Cynical? Yes... But I bet you that's what will happen. They're hardly going to miss out on getting paid for a wedding spread are they? Watch this space.

Oh, and just in case some of you aren't familiar with the cheeky girls and their 'music', check this out:

The Western Mail printed this letter of mine at the beginning of May - bless 'em! Looks as though I was on the optimistic side!

Dear Sir

Has Mr Lembit Opik finally lost touch with reality?

In an interview following his engagement last week he says that "all messages of congratulation will be gratefully received" and that "it is nice, in these troubled times, to bring some good news to the county (Montgomeryshire)". Oh please! In talking like this he displays disturbing signs of delusions of grandeur and sounds more like some latter day son of an earl about to celebrate his "coming of age" than a serious politician.

He also hopes "that Montgomeryshire will celebrate my good news"! What planet is he living on?! Well done Lembit, congratulations but do you seriously expect us to toast you with champagne? If you're living in the real world come round the county and lead those celebrations by buying us all a drink or two. But that's not going to happen is it?

What Mr Opik does in privacy is entirely his own affair but seeing that he wears his private life so publicly on his sleeve some aspects of this "good news" deserve comment.

We are told that the wedding will take place "next year or the year after". Sounds familiar, just like last time and conveniently takes us to beyond the next election, just like last time. In fact for at least the third election out of the four he has fought in Montgomeryshire Mr Opik will traipse around the constituency with a trophy girlfriend hanging conveniently on his arm.

We are also told there are rumours of a wedding in Powis Castle - just like last time. Watch the proposed venue downsize, like last time, from Powis Castle to the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel to "somewhere quiet" before it finally peters out altogether.

It will take more than a celebrity engagement to cheer up these "troubled times". What does he take us for? Certainly we can never take him seriously again.

Yours

Ha ha, fair play to you! I still think the wedding could go ahead... Have to agree that with you that its impossible to take him seriously ever again though. Even if the engagement is over, I can't really see him changing his ways...

When we were campaigning in the 2007 Assembly election 9 out of 10 people volunteered the opinion that they'd had enough of him. His contribution in Parliament to The Government of Wales 2006 Act was risible. He's got no one left to hide behind so I think the act's up.

I think so, and I hope so!

So, it seems that possibly, I was wrong to be so cynical. If anyone saw yesterday's News of the World, there seems to have been genuine reasons behind the split. I don't think anyone deserves to hear about their former finacee's miscarriage for the first time via a tabloid newspaper. Hmm... so it seems there won't be a wedding after all. Lembit and his cheeky girl really are over.
