Yesterday got buggered up first thing, some no-hoper defected to the LibDems, FT poll shows us 5% behind. Andrew Gowers can kiss his knighthood goodbye. Or does it mean he gets a knighthood? What was it Alan said? “If you want to win handsomely, we have to make it look like we’re losing.” Well, that’s his excuse anyway.
As I was coming out of Buck palace had a bit of a dizzy moment, thought it was the old heart flutter again. Hallucinated, thought I saw a poster truck drive by with my face on it with the headline “No Alternative”. Thought it looked a bit sinister rather than the usual smiling, family man stuff. Hope Alastair isn’t having another flying-pigs brainwave. Popped one of those pills Mandy gave me. Felt like things can only get better, again.
World started to spin, and I had a feeling of flying, spinning. Realised I was in a helicopter and en route to some seat we are going to lose in Dorset. Our most marginal seat in the country apparently, its a definite no-hoper, thats the only reason the sitting MP was prepared to have his picture taken with me.
Well, only thirty days to go and then Gordon gets what’s coming.
