I was struck by the news this evening that Gordon Brown is, according to Labour sources, going to take on a more active role in the Labour campaign and will get out to meet more people. It made me think, "Does Brown appear in Labour literature in Blaydon constituency?"
I got out my file of leaflets and checked through them. I could find no mention of Brown and no pictures of him either. Rather odd for David Anderson not to include Mr Brown in his re-election campaign. He was, after all, a committed Brownite whilst Blair was Labour Leader.
Maybe Mr Brown will put in a late appearance in Mr Anderson's literature, or maybe Mr Anderson simply wants to get re-elected instead!
