So Labour really are going for it in Stalybridge South
I stole these images from the blog of Cllr John Taylor - but I am sure he will not mind because after all; the name of the game is to try and demoralise the Stalybridge South Tories.
I thought all this talk of masses of Labourites descending upon Stalybridge South was a decoy aimed at diverting attention away from another part of the borough, but evidently that is not the case and they really are going for it.
I have checked the exif data on the images and they were taken today, the bottom one at 12.02 and the top one at 11.58.
With the exception of crucial by-elections I think it is virtually unheard of that political parties go out canvassing on cold snowy days just before Christmas. This just reinforces my belief that Labour want to win more than does any other party on the Tameside political scene. While the Conservatives, UKIP, the BNP and Greens warm themselves by the fire - Labour are out there electioneering.
If the Conservatives wish to avert a disaster in Stalybridge South I strongly suggest they put themselves on a war footing and begin a massive fight back - and very soon or it will be too late!
