Hear hear. Kennedy was hounded out and they used his alcoholism as an excuse, since there was nothing else they could use. Best was a sad character who has been made into a hero. Fortunately, not everyone sees him as such.

I don’t know about Best, but felt sorry about Kennedy.
He had led the LibDems? to better election performances than they’d had in 80 years, and they hound him out. Looks like rank ingratitude to me.
