Since the Weasel is notoriusly adept at predicting the demise of public figures, we come to the thorny case of Charles Kennedy. He is apparently leader of the Lib Dems, but you wouldn't necessarily know that cos he keeps a low profile.
Words like, "lazy" and "boozer" have been used quite freely of late and the rebellion amongst the republican guard can be likened to a seething miasma of compressed bogies, hissing on a boiling radiator. (obnoxious, tacky and mostly unattributable.)
Yesterday, I would not have given the story much credence, but now, we are talking weeks. Charles Kennedy will throw in the towel sometime in January, certainly by the end of January. Watch this space. The Weasel has spoken.
