Labour wheel out the big hitters

The Western Mail reports that an unnamed big hitter is being dispatched to Blaenau Gwent to help Labour candidate, Maggie Jones, fight off the threat of Peter Law. Speculation is that it could be David Blunkett. Let us hope that he treats the regional press better than his former colleague, John Prescott.

Update: The BBC report that it is indeed David Blunkett who is visiting Blaenau Gwent. On his visit he urged Welsh Assembly Member, Peter Law, to drop out of the race to become an MP in the Labour stronghold. 'Mr Blunkett said Mr Law had "made his point" by leaving Labour to fight in Blaenau Gwent as an independent.' Well, that is going to work isn't it?
