The Cherie on the Cardiff North cake

Yes, Cherie Blair is in town to put a gloss on Labour's campaign in marginal Cardiff North.

Floating voters are urged to take care when passing the Whitchurch area, reports have been received of people signing up to Labour at the mere sight of the prime minister's wife.

One member of the public said: 'I always vote Lib Dem but then I saw Cherie and changed my mind. She gave me a balloon.'

It's times like this when I wonder if democracy is such a good idea.

Rightly or wrongly Cherie hasn't had great PR for some time. I have a feeling that the Tories will be quite pleased about this visit.

The Labour Party must be scared senseless. Cherie Blair was in Cardiff today not only touring a key marginal but also visiting the Dr Who exhibition with son Leo. You know Dr Who - the programme about a charismatic man (whose home is bigger on the inside than on the outside) but who can't help but take people for a ride. Sounds rather like her husband. The party he now leads isn't in great shape either. A party of rather bland and unimaginative "middle class professionals" that like nothing more to busybody (just like the Timelord's more drippy assistants - very little original thinking and twee in outlook). Anyway, some very good news tonight - a poll giving Labour 31% and the Conservatives 40%. If the ultimate busybody (Gordon Brown) takes over then that changes to Labour 29% and the Conservatives 42%. Labour is dying and I'm looking forward to giving a lethal dose in May.

Don't suppose you have a Welsh poll by any chance? That would be just slightly more relevant to the Assembly elections, wouldn't it?

Do hate to disappoint but I tend to focus more on the power and people that matter in Whitehall. Note, and note it well, how I said Whitehall and not Welsh Assembly or even Westminster. For Whitehall is a far superior place in every sense. Superior by nature and, dare I say, superior by birth. Indeed, you should be grateful that I have lowered myself to talk about "politics" in Wales and Whitehall's unended control (and its "power") over it.

That's where Jonathan Morgan is going wrong? Not enough hot air, he leaves that to the Labour Party to produce. ;)
