Thwarted ambition

An insider's tip that may help those of you hoping to join the Eleanor Burnham bandwagon on its (debatably) unstoppable rise to the leadership of the Liberal Democrats in the Welsh Assembly and into power.

Qualified aromatherapist Ms Burnham uses the same final question when interviewing potential members of staff.

It is: "If you were a bar of chocolate, what would you be, and why?"

Apparently the job-clinching answer is: "An Aero, because I'm bright and bubbly."

I fear that a suggested answer featuring Cadbury's Fruit & Nut may limit my prospects of becoming a spin doctor in a future Burnham government.

Ms Burnham is a 10/1 outsider for the group leadership, worth considering if you're reading this outside a branch of Northern Rock and are looking for a riskier home for your money.

Fruit and Nut has always been my favourite. Personally I've always found that an Aero is full of holes and melts easily into a third of its original size ;>D
