Glass Half Full
I'm an optimist. Need to be in times like these.
So here's my mantra for the next three days.
Labour supporters repeat after me:
"We have been in power for 13 years.
We are only 5% behind the Tories 72 hours before trying to secure a fourth term.
We can do it."
Now go back out there, hammer on more doors, deliver more leaflets, get that tiny 2.5% swing from the Tories needed to put us ahead of them in the popular vote. Win that Victory for the True Believers. Read this if you want to know how it'll feel to win a 4th term from behind in the polls: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/1993_True_Believers_speech. Labor Down Under did it. So can we.
Let's hope that on Friday morning Gordon can quote this:
"But most particularly to those people in the Labor party who never lose faith, never lose heart and are there at the polling booths to work and to fight for good things. Thank you. The people who never give up, who always keep on believing who are always there no matter how heavy the travails may be. To you I say thank you very much indeed, thank you again. Thank you for believing."
