Yes I know, made my jaw drop as well! but this is what he said on his blog this morning:
"No, most people who don't vote tend to take the 'plague on all your houses' approach and are a very difficult group to entice back into the polling booth. It's even more difficult when there is relative economic stability. "
Now you can't give the credit to the Tories on this one, they have been out of power for ten years. So who else but Gordon is responsible for this! Could it be that in a Post-Blair Labour administration we shall see Iain change sides? ;)
