Glenrothes is held by Labour!, Obama Wins a stunning victory, Armistice Day and a visit to the Emirates!

Good news at last for the Government with a comfortable victory in the Glenrothes By-Election after the last few bad results.
Labour's majority of 10,664 at the 2005 election was reduced to 6,737, although the number of votes it polled actually increased.
This confirms the Labour Party's current revival in the Polls as people now see Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling as the people they want to lead the UK out of the current financial difficulties over "Tory Boy's" Cameron and George "Oik" Osborne!
Not really that much of a surprise though is it?
Really exciting to see the Obama victory and the early days of him putting his team together. I stayed up most of the night to see that remarkable victory which has really shaken up world politics!
I am sure that Obama and Brown will work well together and signal the start of a left of centre coalition dominating world politics! No place for the Burlington Club policies of Cameron, Osborne and Boris!!

I shall be laying a wreath at the Camberwell Green War Memorial on Sunday marking the 90th Anniversary of Armistace Day when the unimaginable slaughter of World War 1 came to an end on he 11th November 1918 at 11am.
It is important to remember all of those who have fallen or were injured in all wars and conflicts since then up to the present day and to never forget their sacrifices!
I am looking forward to going to the Emirates tomorrow to see Arsenal take on Man Utd. ("Manure" ) in the early kick off!
Arsenal are on the back of a few bad results and need to turn it around tomorrow but it is a very tough ask !

Hibs take on Inverness Caley at Easter Road tomorrow, a bit of a bogey team for us, and we need a win to get us back on track after a few bad results in recent weeks despite all round good performances!
