Support Gary Elsby!

For many years Gary Elsby was a regular contributor to the comments on this blog, much to the amusement of fellow co-conspirators. So it is without hesitation that Guido endorses his campaign “to do battle” and “carry the torch of socialism.”

The former Stoke Labour Party constituency secretary is standing as an independent, this is a bit of collateral damage in advance of the full-scale civil war that will come following a Labour defeat. Mandelson is trying to hold the line against the Whelan-Balls-Brown axis which is putting its placemen into upcoming seats using UNITE’s muscle with Tom Watson enforcing the faction’s advantage wherever he can. Mandelson in private sees the battle for Labour’s soul as his primary mission having calculated that Labour is likely to face at least one, if not two terms out of office.

The exit of so many Blairites has been a tawdry money-grubbing affair which has strengthened the Brownite / UNITE hand with ordinary disgusted Labour Party activists.  Mandelson has weakened his hand by misjudging matters and insisting that a “toff” like Tristram should be a standard bearer for his faction.

All in all, Stoke promises to be a foretaste of the chaos that will engulf the Labour Party following election day…
