Well it's finally all over. The Deputy Leadership contest of the Labour Party comes to an end today. It's pretty clear that Alan Johnson will be the victor, second place will come down to Benn and Cruddas. Who will come last though, that is the question!
One thing is for sure, the Orange One has definitely not taken advantage of all the money he managed to drum up in donations. Hain had literally thousands of leaflets printed all about how great he was, and about his historic fight against racism but it seems that not many Labour members ever received them.
Currently his make-shift campaign office still remains rammed to the brim with boxes full of the aforementioned leaflets. The Mandela poster has been taken down as well. The question is, will he be recycling all his literature? After all, they is quite a lot of it. It's even starting to spill out of the office.
We should of course feel sorry for the Labour MP for Slough as well. Fiona McTaggart, presumably in a "moment of madness" decided to chuck £1,050 in the direction of Harriet Harman's campaign. A grand down the swanny! Still, she gets paid by the taxpayer right, so when you think about it, it wasn't really her money anyway!
Update: Hahaha... that will teach me. £1,050 well invested.
