More Campaignin'

Gordon Brown has spent another day campaigning ahead of the Glenrothes by-election next Thursday. Except, true to form, it isn't proper campaigning at all. As shown on the helpful map below (courtesy of Jess The Dog), Brown has travelled about 500 yards from the Labour HQ to visit a Velux windows factory.The yellow box is my addition. It shows the location of the garage Gordon visited last weekend. So as you can clearly see, Gordon is really putting the effort in. The only thing that worries me about this is that Gordon wouldn't be campaigning at all if he knew Labour were going to lose; he's too much of a coward to do that. Therefore, maybe Labour's internal polling might be leaning towards a win. We shall just have to wait and see.

they are being suckered.

When asked, a punter will say that GB is "doing a brilliant job". The Party faithful scribbles down a positive and moves on - not listening to the rest of the punter's sentence. "of F**king up the country"

And Labour retained the seat with a greater share of the vote (though not a bigger majority) and the Tories lost their deposit.

Is there something to be learned from this?

Erm, no. It's people being fooled by Labour and not by the Tories?
