Lembit Opik, asteroid dweller and popular music fan, has now said he has no interest whatever in standing for Mayor of London, so presumably the LibDems will now have to look for some anonymous android for their candidate.

This will still leave it as a two horse race between our very own ray of sunshine, AKA Boris, and The Creature from The Perma-Slime, AKA Red Ken.

Go Boris, Go!
