Anyway, only good thing from the whole debacle: Gillian Duffy has turned down a sum, said to be £50-£75K, from Rupert Murdoch-owned The Sun. That is a lot of money for a working class pensioner worried about getting her grandkids through university. A lot.
Reputedly, The Sun, which has been campaigning aggressively since last October for a Conservative victory, wanted her to attack Gordon Brown in unrestrained language and declare her support for David Cameron but, after a lifetime's allegiance to the Labour Party, she would not do it.
I said before that I value loyalty very highly. In the 'political analysis' quiz it is the one way I am closer to 'conservative' than 'liberal' views, and it's the same with a lot of working class people.
