Official - Clegg vs. Huhne

So it's confirmed - nominations have closed and the Lib Dem leadership contest is between Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne. Whoever wins, at least the name is easy to get on to a poster!

The blogosphere seems to have had more to say about Chris Huhne recently rather than Nick Clegg but no doubt there will be a catching up. Both are trying to attract headlines. For instance, Chris' call to abandon Trident missiles and spend the billions on something more effective. Nick was first to call for civil disobedience over ID cards today.

Various people still weighing up the options, including Don Liberali, and David Nikel points to the discussion on politicalbetting. Jonathan Calder welcomed the breaking-out of a debate.

Thanks for the link, but I have not decided to back anyone yet.

And Mark Valladares eventually decided he was backing Nick.
