Bloggers on the Lib Dem leadership

wwhyte commented re a previous entry that the Lib Dem bloggers appear to be drifting to Huhne. Much consultation of Icerocket reveals that in fact the honours are fairly even so far, though it's certainly the case that the bloggers backing Huhne are comparatively more heavyweight. Campbell's internet presence is being run by my old friend Martin Tod, which will certainly give him an edge in cyberspace - in so far as that helps...

Backing Campbell:
Peter of the Apollo Project
Stephen Tall
Dave Smithson
Tim Hicks

John Hemming MP
Ian Ridley (deciding between Huhne and Campbell)
dom (leaning Hughes)

Edited to add: I'm updating this entry as things move. When I originally published it on Friday 20 January, the blog count was 9 (and two leaning) for Campbell; 10 (and two leaning) for Hughes; and 10 (and two leaning) for Huhne.

It is now (28 January) 14 (and two leaning) for Campbell; 15 (and three leaning) for Hughes; and 22 for Huhne.

Best quote on Campbell, from marnanel: "Fin and I were talking about yoghs (Ȝȝ) in bed last night."
