I think this is Simons last chance to break into the big time. Enough of these meaningless protests on
lost causes like standing outside City Hall
over the demise of routemaster buses, and make a comvincing
bid for the leadership. And just why isn't Hughes popular amongst his colleagues?
It was always said that whenever Kennedy had threats to his leadership his camp would say -"You don't want Simon Hughes
." For although the runner-up last time is said to be the choice of the activists he is not popular amongst his Westminster colleagues.
