Northern Decision Makers - Election Special 2

The latest Decision Makers, featuring Graham Robb for the Tories, David Stoker for the LibDems and myself for Labour has been recorded and is ready to view now. You can see the programme here.

Ably compered (referee'd?) by Chris Lloyd the Assistant Editor at the Northen Echo, there's some good knockabout. Remarkably, LibDem David Stoker is confident enough to 'call' Newcastle North for his party before a ballot has even been cast!

Although I engaged in a bit of gallows humour at the end of the programme, we had our best night canvassing this evening on Kingsway in my ward. Loads of positive responses for Labour. That's how I like it!

Eric says.....

Some people say they are Labour just to get rid of you.

The next Government should make a law that people who vote Labour will be subject to a public flogging in the Market Place to make em see the eror of their ways.

Evening Councillor Thorne-Wallis been out spreading falsehoods again have you? Despite what you think the electorate aren't stupid you know.

Where's James these days? He's gone ever so quiet. Has he seen the light and left the stinking ship?

Was it you in the Elvis suit yesterday with Broon? Sad really. Go on Councillor put your Elvis suit on you can't do any worse than the joke you are now.

Hi Nick - The link to the Decision Makers programme leads to your DBC Outlook Web Access login page, not the programme!

Oops, thanks for that - I've made the necessary change.

This is my theory why Elvis appeared with Gordon on Saturday.

Gordon is under some new and experimental drug treatment. It is working well, but they are worried that, if pushed, he could snap and lose it live during one of the debates.

His doctors said: “Best not to push it. Be careful. Try to accommodate his whims if you can.”

So, one morning, Gordon wakes up and said: “I had a dream about meeting Elvis last night. I wish I could meet him in real life.” And so, the act was booked, and a simple act of kindness was turned into a major PR humilitation, sure to be talked about with scorn for decades to come.

Jailhouse Rock or Heartbreak Hotel should be on the list.

Followed by 'Its over' sung by Roy Orbison and 'My Way' by Frank Sinatra with everyone belting out 'and now the end is near.'
