Lucas Rattled.

It is obvious by the number of Ministerial visits to Wrecsam Constituency that Ian Lucas is rattled and Labour are really concerned they might lose Wrecsam on at least an 11% swing. On Saturday we had the Lord Adonis coming here to give the demoralised Labour team a lift, yesterday it was David Miliband gathering support for a leadership bid undoubtedly. Today we are expecting the great man himself, Gordon Brown, don't know where, don't know when. Initially it was Glyndwr University then it was Sharps in Llay but no one's too sure. One thing is clear Gordy doesn't want to meet the public this is just another stage managed photo opportunity to promote Lucas's candidacy.


Labour til I die said...

I've had three pieces of glossy Lib Dem propaganda through the post today - these all cost about £1000 to print and a substantial amount of postage per constituency.
Each constituency candidate can only spend £10,000 per election campaign. How close is Rippeth to exceeding his limit (especially as the shop must cost £1000 a month to rent)?
The Lib Dems can only win by using dodgy donations form convicted fraudsters.

Labour are losing votes to Plaid and the Lib Dems here. I think a shock is on the cards.

Plaid Whitegate said...

Never heard "Labour til I die" complaining about dodgy donations from the Mittal Brothers and other non-dom millionaires.
Now the rich are deserting the Blairites, Labour is suddenly rediscovering its social conscience - too little, too late.

Right, let's stop this clap-trap.

It's the eve of poll tomorrow and Arfon Jones has been talking up his chances for months. "Labour losing votes here, Labour losing votes there." etc.

So, with only a few hours left before the people speak, are Plaid Wrexham going to stop this drivel and either claim victory in this constituency, or would he (or Janet Ryder's gophers) like to predict how many votes Plaid are going to get on Thursday?

Come on guys - cut to the chase and tell us where you will finish!

Plaid Whitegate said...

As one of Janet Ryder's gophers (oh, the flattery) I suppose the first thing to say is that predicting this election is impossible, either locally or on a UK basis.
I hope the local campaign has had an impact - in fact I'm sure it has but trying to guess the result... I'll leave that to Paddy Power and Ladbrokes.
Perhaps "Brian" would like to make his own prediction?

Brian Hodgkiss (North Walian and proud!) said...

Ah! You are obviously not claiming victory then. Interesting!

My prediction? Labour hold.

Don't worry, I will be reminding Plaid Wrexham of this prediction come Friday morning!

P.S. Here's another prediction for you. Plaid will come a very poor fourth - again!

Plaid Whitegate said...

Brian, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.
I'm glad we've rattled your little cage.

What relevance exactly does North Walian and proud! have to this election debate, why not just Brian Hogkiss on its own is the rest of the name bit of an inferiority complex!

If Brian thinks that what is on this blog is claptrap, well so be it. If he doesn't like it he can convey his own views on his own blog but of course it weould then be difficult to hide behind a cloak of anonymity.
