There appears to be some skirmishing going on between Kerry McCarthy, the Labour MP for Bristol East and Twitter Tsar for the campaign ahead, and some of the Tory blogosphere and Twitterati.
Now far be it from me to interfere in such an edifying contest, but are my blue friends entirely serious in their quest to replace Kerry with Adeela Shafi? An 8.3% swing is just about within the realms of credibility but it is, according to UK Polling Report, Conservative target seat number 160. A win there, and we're looking at a Conservative majority of about 65. Given that the best guesstimates are of a majority of about 30, that would indicate that Adeela will come up short.
On the other hand, the mini-campaign has raised Adeela's profile (as well as some money, I understand), distracted the incumbent and introduced something new into the world of political fundraising, so it may well turn out to be valuable after all.
My Tory friends will forgive me if I don't wish them the best of luck in their efforts (Mike Popham would doubtless make an excellent constituency MP for the residents of Bristol East), but they certainly entertain. Just one thing, gentlemen - wouldn't #makeAdeelaMP have made a more positive statement?
