CHARLES KENNEDY’S election campaign sparked into life last night as hundreds of supporters had to be locked out of his first election mass meeting.
About 500 people crowded into the Guildhall at Cambridge, on the day that the former Labour MP Brian Sedgemore defected to the Liberal Democrats.
Hundreds more queued in the rain outside but were turned away. Mr Kennedy went outside to address them in the market square where, in unscripted remarks delivered through a megaphone, he told the crowd: “We’re on the move”.
Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the pudding-race!
