Glenrothes - Labour campaign starts with a blunder

The campaign to fill the casual vacancy in Glenrothes will be announced in the House of Commons today.

Not wishing to be left behind, Labour's headteacher candidate, Lindsay Roy, marched his troops straight into the bus station to start leafleting. Shortly after, suffering a rejection reaction, Labour troops marched off into Postgate to campaign there.

Trouble is, as all of us know, party political campaigning isn't allowed in Postgate and security soon appeared and frogmarched Labour's campaign right off the premises.

Gaffe early, gaffe often appears to be Labour's campaign slogan these days.
