The week Uncut

The ballot papers are out. Voting has begun and the end is in sight. In three weeks the party will have its leader and the job of opposition can begin.

The Red Menace, Bash’em, Rocky, the Mauler and the Changemaker were back on the campaign trail kissing babies and courting votes.  The candidates played the numbers game with campaign polls coming out that all, unsurprisingly, said their man was the answer.

It was the week David and Ed B played nice, Andy auditioned to be Shadow Health Secretary, Diane got stood up in Camden, Ed M welcomed new members and Tony’s big week was overshadowed by the New York Times and Andy Coulson.

In case you missed them, here are Uncut’s best read pieces of the last seven days:

    … and out in the south-west sticks (well Bristol westwards at least) we are still waiting for our first hustings. Thursday 9 September. Nice to feel wanted.
