Since I wrote my stirring call to class warfare a few days back I've discovered that they've been fiddling with the parliamentary boundaries, and my Labour candidate is no longer party grandee Michael Meacher- whom I respect, but New Labour trusty Phil Woolas- whom I don't.
I checked out the Lib Dem alternative. His name is Elwyn Watkins, he has one of those fat, chipmunkey faces that you only see on politicians,  he works as a financial advisor to Saudi billionaire Sheikh Abdullah Alhamrani and he used to be a Councillor in Rochdale, where his record for attending meetings is poor.

Phew.  That's a relief. I want Labour to win the election, but voting for Woolas is a stretch and if the Lib Dems had been putting a white knight up against him I'd have been tempted to defect. But they haven't, so I'm not.
