No Place for Secret Plans

At about five o’clock today someone known as Lens21 (or Brian van Doogledunk) posted a rumour on twitter that Labour was planning for a November general election.  Now I have no way of knowing whether Brian is a credible source but it does strike me that keeping plans for an election secret is a thing of the past.  MPs are going twitter crazy, even posting comments from within the House of Commons.

You can not marshall forces within the party without bringing a lot of individuals into the tent. It only takes a tiny leak and the story will be all over you the social web before you can say “your majesty it is my wish to dissolve your parliament”.

If Labour does have secret plans for an election they won’t stay secret for very long.
