Going, going .....
Labour have held onto a council seat in the Salford constituency of Hazel Blears, the Communities Secretary. Are you surprised? Relieved? Do you think Hazel Blears has been victimised over her expenses claims? Or do you think she deserves everything she's getting? How do you feel about the way that her friends suggest a political vendetta is being waged against her by number ten? They arrive at that view because of the full backing that has been given by the Prime Minister to two other Cabinet ministers - Geoff Hoon and James Purnell who are also reported to have paid no capital gains tax on London properties they sold.
Ed's doing Any Questions tonight - we'll be trying to establish contact with him on his journey to Sheffield.
See you later
