I'm grateful to one of my NEC colleagues for suggesting at our last meeting that Labour should remind voters that a Labour government led by Prime Minister Gordon Brown kept Britain's cash-points working when the banking crisis struck.
If we could afford posters it would make an interesting visual for the nation's billboards, compared to the notorious Saatchi & Saatchi 'Labour isn't working' campaign in the run up to the 1979 election. Why not stickers? Sponsored by each of the banks that was rescued? Wouldn't that help remind the electorate of the realities of market forces on each of their ATMs, and Labour's role in keeping the ATMs in service?
I can't help thinking those would send much more salient messages about the Labour Party than news that Brown wept in an interview with Piers Morgan to be broadcast next week. I'm wondering how many other people think private grief is best kept.....private.
