By-election update: Former Labour councillor backs Green candidate in Goldsmid ballot (this week!)
It seems Labour can't stop the exodus in support: the latest convert to the Green Party's cause is former Goldsmid Labour councillor Vince Meegan.
Mr Meegan, who lost his seat on the city council in 2007 by just 30-odd votes, said Labour just can't win and urged all Lib-Dem and labour voters to support Alex - and bring down the Tory's fragile grip on minority administration.
Rumour has it that initial postal ballots are looking pretty disastrous for Labour - I hope there's still time for the party's few remaining supporters to Go Green if they want to use their vote to kick the Tories out.
