The delusion continues. Lembit Opik is quoted in the Evening Standard today as follows:
Ever since I was first enticed into entering the fray as a potential candidate, I’ve experienced a remarkable degree of antagonism and aggression from certain Lib-Dems.
But we should look at the actual result courtesy of @markpack:
Brian Paddick 1,289 (42%)
Mike Tuffrey 1,232 (40%)
Brian Haley 316 (10%)
Lembit Opik 252 (8%)
Total valid votes: 3,089
Brian Paddick 1,567 (51%)
Mike Tuffrey 1,476 (49%)
Majority: 99 (2%)
So, out of a total of 3089 first preferences, Lembit Opik got 252, or 8.2%.
