Labour’s new membership leaflet shows just how unpopular even they think Gordon Brown is

It’s a membership leaflet from Labour.

One side is covered by a large photo of a politician addressing a crowd.

Gordon Brown perhaps? No.

The reverse does have one mention of a Labour member. Admittedly it’s their General Secretary Ray Collins, and he only gets named in the imprint. But fair’s fair, there is his name in tiny print at the foot of the page.

    presumably MC’s point is that we’ll have to pulp the leaflets next week when we depose Nick Clegg and replace him with Lembit Opik, or me, or whoever …

    Very droll!
