After the Conservative candidate for the Eastleigh by-election was caught copying and pasting from Wikipedia to illustrate her knowledge of the local area, it looks as though the Labour party have handed the Lib Dems another election gift.
With much fanfare the Labour party have announced John O’Farrell to be their candidate in for the Eastleigh by-election.
Within hours a quote from John’s own book, ‘Things Can Only Get Better’, has emerged where he tells his brother “to go for it” when asked if he should vote Lib Dem tactically to defeat the Tories.
It looks as though things are getting better for the Lib Dems in Eastleigh.
Hat tip to Mark Pack for the quote.

To many of us we see no difference between Labour and the Tories when in government. Labour only act like Labour when in opposition.
While this will cheer a few Lib Dems, these are slightly different circumstances. Indeed I think Labour’s point is to make the argument that the Lib Dems and Tories are now indistinguishable. Possibly not fair but a strong narrative all the same.
