Afraid of the Dark
Channel 4 are going to show a documentary tomorrow night called Gordon Brown: Where Did It All Go Wrong? I'll make extra effort to catch it, purely because of its awesome name. But The Guardian has apparently seen it already, and have a choice quote from Hazel. Apparently, she was against the election-that-never-was last autumn because 'Labour voters would not turn out on dark nights'. I've heard "the electorate are sending us a message", and "people are concerned by global economic forces" as excuses for poor Labour election results, but "Labour voters are scared of the dark" would certainly be a new one.
