Every few weeks I take a look at Jeffrey Archer's BLOG to see what he's been up to. It's rather good, actually. I was particularly interested in his entry from 3 November where he recounts a lunch with The Sun's Trevor Kavanagh...
Thursday. I had lunch today at the Tate Gallery with Trevor Kavanagh, former political editor of The Sun, now considered the doyen of the profession. Trevor believes that both Labour and the Conservatives have everything to play for, and that the transition to Gordon Brown before the next Labour party conference will be fairly smooth; but like me, he isn't sure what the outcome of the next general election will be. He feels this will of course depend a great deal on the initial impact Brown has as Prime Minister - though he knows one senior political editor who has taken a bet on Labour increasing its majority.
Come again?! I'd love to know the circumstances under which that would happen. I can only think of three possibilities...
a) LibDems cease to exist due to bankruptcy and their supporters defect en masse to Labour
b) David Cameron is caught in bed with a sheep on the eve of poll
c) Labour introduce all out postal voting
So who is this 'senior political editor'?
