David Plans Victory Party as Polls Peak

In the closing days punters are shifting decisively towards David Miliband becoming the next leader of the Labour Party and winning all three sections of the vote. The money is on him winning even the trade union block, despite the hundred grand Unite gave his little brother. A poll for the Daily Politics had him ahead amongst local councillors in addition to MPs, MEPs and members. It looks like he’s got it sewn up.

So it is no surprise then that he is already planning his victory party. Free day passes to Labour Conference for David Miliband supporters are being organised by his “Movement for Change” on the condition that they turn up to his rally being held on the 28th, the day after the result of the leadership election is announced. Despite caveating that the rally will go ahead whoever wins, it sounds a lot like a victory party…

Supporters are also invited to the new leader’s first conference speech, all free of charge. This isn’t the first time the front-runner has been quite so brazen. Despite promising a thousand community organisers would be trained by his campaign, he apparently had to flood his eve-of-voting-rally in London with members of left-wing group London Citizens. Guido imagines his opponents might have one or two things to say about potentially bribing supporters with free conference access…

          London Citizens a “left-wing organisation”? Wrong. As a member I can tell you it’s a-political, which is why Cameron and the Milibands are falling over themselves to adopt its principles and aims. Being interested in civic empowerment and social justice does not necessarily make you left-wing.

      Some might consider an acknowledgment of hurt to Mrs Hague would be gentlemanly (Anna Raccoon blogged about “colateral damage” the other day), but in fairness to Guido, he didn’t drag Mrs Hague into it.

      William Hague is a senior politician, and knows full well that in politics you have to take the rough with the even rougher. Some in the past have decided that the game isn’t worth the candle, packed it in and gone to do something more congenial with life. He could do that if he chose to. As it is, looks like he’s staying.

    It’s pretty academic beyong the rarified atmosphere of the Westminster Village. I simply can’t see a way back for Labour except in Scotland where they could topple the SNP.
