The Oldham & Saddleworth by-election on Thursday could result in a win for Labour. Polls cannot make up their minds (as if they have them) as to whether the Lib Dems or the Tories will be pushed into third place.
A win for Labour would be a vindication of the work the local party and its previous MP have accomplished over 13 years.
The Coalition will fall apart at some stage - the really active members of the Lib Dems won't want to join Cleggy in the Tories and will finally rebel. A by election used to be a by word for a Lib Dem victory.........how the world has changed (but not for long).
