Shows you the calibre of people Martin surrounded himself with - not True Believers, but rather, people who wanted power. Now they know their great white knight is about to exit not with a bang but with a pathetic whimper, they jump ship, trying to find the next great star to attach themselves to.
Pathetic. If McKenna - or anyone else - has any sense, he'll tell Martin's lot that, far from being an effective group, they took down the most successful modern Prime Minster, they took the leadership not because of a competing vision for the Party but just so they could have it, and then ran a bad, and then an absolutely incompetent campaign, thrusting power into Steven Harper's hands.
