Yes it appears that the Tim'rous Beastie's cabinet are urging him to break away from Prime Ministerial convention and actually campaign in the Glenrothes by-election. Having taken the barbs of a Scottish Prime Minister staying away from the Glasgow East by election it appears that cabinet colleagues would rather as he is in the neighbourhood, i.e. his own constituency next door, do a little campaigning for the headteacher of his old school.
After all what is worse as one cabinet minister told the Times:
"Gordon got the flak for Glasgow East even though he did not go there. He is
going to get the flak for Glenrothes even though he goes and we lose. He might
as well go."
Oh dear, this from a party that hasn't seemed in recent years to be too keen to use their party leader's images on election literature too much either. So Gordon which flak are you prepared to take? It's up to Gordon, you decide.
