Dunfermline was below the radar. Well below the radar until a message arrived from Party Chief Exec Chris Rennard a couple of days ago saying all hands on deck. And then yesterday (Thursday) in the afternoon, came the message putting us on standby for a shock result.
But I had to see it to believe it. A month ago we dared not turn on the tv or radio in the morning for fear of another Lib Dem revelation. A month is a long time in politics. Willie Rennie now an MP. After a month of political indigestion for the Lib Dems, take a Rennie! It's a great cure!
So have a moment (just a moment) of sympathy for Labour members. The world for them gets worse. On Thursday they kiss goodbye to Dunfermline. On Friday, they have to go to Blackpool. Life couldn't get much worse.
So to my Labour friends, a little message. In the famous words of Monty Python, Always look on the bright side of life. For the rest of us, Dunfermline brightened up our lives! Pass the champagne please!
