The art of gamesmanship and how to give your opponent sleepless nights….
Phil Woolas and Elwyn Watkins are locked in mortal combat over the alleged corruption of Phil Woolas, the sitting MP, during the 2010 General Election.
If Woolas fails to successfully defend himself in the case, there will be a by-election in Oldham East and Saddleworth.
The High Court Judges who sat to hear the rare case brought under the Misrepresentation of the People Act 1983, have retired to consider their verdict, which they are due to deliver in the first week of October.
Yesterday Elwyn Watkins advertised on the widely read parliamentary site w4mp for campaign workers to join his ‘expanding campaign team’ in October 2010……the confidence with which he assumes that he will be campaigning and fighting that seat again in October can do nothing to soothe the Woolas nerves.
Attaboy Elwyn – confidence is half the battle!
