Labour candidate lets the cat out of the bag
21/01/2009 22:41:00

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...

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
