I understand the necessity of it. Politics is a rough old game. And maybe I'm being sentimental. But when I see Labour bigwigs like Peter Orangeman Hain and Blinky Balls suggesting that Labour voters might support the LibDems in those seats where the latter have a greater chance of defeating the Tories, I always think of the poor Labour candidates in such seats. How must they feel, hearing that the high heidyins in their party are prepared to sell them out? Their one chance for glory, admittedly a slim chance but a chance nonetheless, being sacrificed for the allegedly greater good of overall party advantage.
