A stumble in the dark?
I have just come back from a two day meeting of Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Members and Parliamentarians in the very picturesque Llangammarch Wells. On arriving the first thing that stood out was that Lembit Opik has a black eye. The story, according to him, is that he was on a cruise and trying to get ready for bed in the dark so as not to wake Sian. Whilst doing this he banged into a framed shaving mirror and then, whilst still staggering around in pain, he banged into it again even harder. The next day the bump developed into a very distinguished looking shiner. There is a lesson here somewhere but I am not sure what it is.
