Iain, what's your prediction for UKIP this time round? I seem to recall you got it rather wrong for the Euro Elections. :P

I had not realised that Charles Clarke was a lonely Norfolk Labour MP.

This perhaps explains his eagerness (especially with this byelection due) to get on to the 'phonetap scandal' bandwagon. He will feel very exposed if labour lose.

I hope Labour finish 3rd or below prompting an open challenge on Brown's leadership, new leader, general election, Conservative victory.

I didn't get a reply to my last post so here it is again.

Iain we all know that you didn't take dockers jobs seriously and did not shed a single tear when they became unemployed after liberalization. Furthermore don't start blaming the unions because it was a direct result of liberalization under Thatcher and her free-market orthodoxy.

Quite simply Iain you show no compassion for the unemployed - particularly during the Thatcher years and the recession in 1992. Guess what both occurred under a Conservative government.
Your small state, low tax government done nothing then to stimulate demand and led to prolonged recession which destroyed people's livelihood. I remember the recession in 1992 and the house market crash.

I haven't heard one single Conservative policy which would stimulate demand into the economy.
Only cuts, cuts and more cuts.

On a separate note I think Charles Clarke will be looking very carefully at the election in Norwich North and will be reflecting upon his own political career.

I think Antony Little might take the initiative and gain a newly added confidence if the Conservatives win in Norwich North.
