Is Brown About to March His Troops up the Hill Again?
This email has just gone out to senior Labour election planners, candidates and agents. It gives them a deadline of next Wednesday for them to order their election literature. The wording implies that quite a few candidates haven't actually ordered any literature yet. This weekend's events are clearly of huge importance to the Labour campaign, hence the extended print deadline. I cannot think why they would be doing all this now if an election announcement wasn't imminent.
Surely Gordon can't march his troops up to the top of the hill again?
UPDATE: Thinking about this, what this email does show is a degree of chaos. There was clearly a deadline that they were working to. Some candidates have adhered to that, but these last minute plans for the weekend have screwed things up. One thing is for sure. It will really hack off those who thought their materials were signed off and put to bed but now have to resubmit their words and artwork. Such is the life of a candidate.
