Labour candidate lets the cat out of the bag

My Labour opponent, Gerry Ryan, has told The Croydon Guardian that it would make things "a bit more exciting" if Andrew Pelling stood as an Independent at the next Election. Translation: with Labour trailing by 14 points in the latest opinion poll, he knows that his prospects of winning the seat are pretty bleak, he doesn't think Andrew would have a chance of winning as an Independent but he does hope that he would split the Conservative vote, giving Gerry a fighting chance.

So there you have it: Labour think the only people who would benefit from Andrew standing as an Independent are them. I suspect Gerry might regret letting this particular cat out of the bag...
