I spent the afternoon campaigning in Clerwood and Drum Brae. Not long in I have just switched on the TV and the image of Charlton Heston playing Gordon of Khartoum flicked up onto the screen. It reminded me of the lady encountered by a canvasser during David Steel's winning by election who would not vote Liberal because Gladstone had failed to rescue Gordon of Khartoum! The by-election was in 1965!
I was amused to read David Milliband taking a swipe at anti war demonstrators yesterday saying apparently that they had already punished Labour enough. I am sure he is hoping they have shorter memories than the Empire Loyalist in the Borders.
