Stop it you two!

Sometimes you feel like banging some heads together.

Tony and Gordon - lay off it. And get your mates to stop briefing and leaking.

You both owe some loyalty to a party that is bigger than either of you. You also owe a duty to the country.

Voters do not like divided parties - we saw that clearly during the 1980s and we don't want to go back to those days. Remember, we had a Tory government then? If we lose the election, those days will return. Think about that - the day after the next election, Michael Howard gets to walk into Number 10. If that isn't enough to get you to shut up and get on with your jobs, I don't know what is.

The same goes for those of you out there considering making a protest vote against Tony by voting LibDem or not voting at all. I don't support everything that this government has done and I want to see more done to deal with social inequality, but I am certain that progress on the things that matter to me will only come through a Labour government.

It won't come through a Tory government intent on £20 billion of cuts to public services in a desparate drive to pay for tax cuts.

It won't come through a Liberal Democrat government with their fuzzy policies and lack of clarity over tax and the NHS.

With all their faults, it will only come through Labour. Remember that when you go to the polls.

Tony and Gordon - don't do that.
