Oncoming Oldham onslaught...
Sorry for 'old-news' posts but hey, I'm catching up on a lot after a "well deserved" break.
Just one thought about Thursday's Oldham East and Saddleworth by-election: this seat was won by Labour at the General election so, IMHO, anything but a WHOOPING victory for Labour now is to be expected. Nothing else; certainly not a blow for Clegg or the Coalition. In fact, more to the point, the most worried should be Labour and Ed Miliband: if it isn't a thumpingly clear margin of victory he may as well pack his bags now, especially after the weak and ill-judged defence of his shadow chancellor Alan Johnson: when the mistake is clear best surely to admit it and move on rather than spout pathetic partisan dross, "I take his judgements over George Osborne's any day". What, even when you know AJ is wrong?
