Lembit...

Quick one this. I wasn't going to post anything about Lembit for a while in case people thought I was obsessed, but he just keeps on giving. It would be rude not to point this out...
During a debate on the Housing and Regeneration Bill last night, Mr Iain Wright MP concluded his speech by wishing his six year old daughter a happy birthday. The members responded with a supportive "hear hear".

Lembit was next to speak and concluded his speech with the following: "In conclusion, let me wish my godfather Kalju Niit a happy birthday as well—and thank you for your patience, Mr. Deputy Speaker." There was no response from the members.

Can't he see that there's a huge difference between wishing your six year old daughter a happy birthday and wishing your godfather? The former is sweet and thoughtful. The latter just sounded idiotic. As I've said before, and will now repeat: Lembit Opik= idiot.

Hm. The County Times [of Montgomeryshire] praised Lembit last week for "maintaining a dignified silence" during the latest disclosures from [ex-] fiancee and would-be mother-in-law. Wonder if his solicitor's told him to shut up?!
