I was sorry to hear of the shock resignation of the Liberal leader Charles Kennedy. It takes a big man to admit they have a problem and an even bigger man to confess they are an alcoholic. It's sad that at a time when he needed them most, none of his colleagues would give him any support, despite the fact he led the Liberal party to their best showing in decades in last May's elections. How soon we forget! And no sooner has he resigned, than the vultures are circling, with potential candidates waiting to step into his shoes. When you look at the state this country has been run by various political leaders in the past and they were sober(!!), I'm sure Charles Kennedy would have done just fine. It's just a shame we never got a chance to find out.
