    The BBC has the news:

    Nick Clegg has won the race to become the next Lib Dem leader, acting leader Vincent Cable has announced.

    Mr Clegg, 40, beat Chris Huhne, 53, to become the party’s third leader in three years.

    LibDem Voice has the vote breakdown:

    Nick Clegg - 20,988
    Chris Huhne - 20,477
    Turnout - 41,465

    500 votes winning margin? Talk about close!

    So, how does this change things, if anything? Consider this a semi open thread for thoughts, reactions and predictions…

      Imagine what it’ll be like when Labour lose Brown (sectioned probably) and ‘elect’ David Milipede? Cameron will become the old man of politics!

      Who would’ve thunk it?!

      Wow this is amazing. Who’s Nick Clegg?

      I think TB has set the bench mark of how politics needs to be presented. The Lib Dems have chosen wisely with Clegg as he appeals to the wider vote ( women, middle england- coincedently the largest groups likely to vote).

      My prediction- Clegg and DC will unoffically team up- force the quiet Blarites to revolt- next election Brown out DC in- smallish majority- Miliband leads- 2013- showdown with DC, DM and NC.

      Right, i’m off to Ladbrokes!
