I am amused by the latest revelations from Former Labour General Secretary Peter Watt that Gordo bottled the election.

Not only did they have 1.5m leaflets printed but had a fleet of limos circling Parliament Square to whisk ministers away to campaign.

However, anyone who was in the village or knew people in the village in 97 have their own stories to tell about the farce that was the election that wasn't.

For instance I know of at least four PR professionals who had already started being paid retainers and had been granted absence of leave for the election.

Also there was one poor constituency that was ordered the morning of the expected announcement to ditch targetted leaflets and posters that had costed them £100,000 to produce.

And that constituency happened to have a cabinet minister as its MP!
