Do you believe in "signs" ...
Imagine being a Tory Councillor and the local PPC, when you walk into your dining room to find out that your darling, sweet, gorgeous 2 years old had gotten hold of your "lucky" Conservative rosette (the one you wore winning each of the last 5 local elections) and had coloured it in using a felt-tip pen.
Then imagine - as you react calmly and lovingly to this incident - discovering she had coloured it with a red felt-tip pen.
Top to bottom red scrawled over the blue, the logo, the lot ... it is as bad as you think.
So either a sign of my impending defection to Gordon's tribe - or I have a very naughty toddler - and I know which it is!!
