Gordon Brown woke this morning to yet more bad news about his campaign after learning that Gillian Duffy the pensioner from Rochdale he branded only yesterday as a 'Bigoted woman' is to stand for election herself.
Despite apologies Browns massive blunder is sure to see his popularity plummet even further and Duffy plans to exploit his weaknesses and put herself in the race.
When the news was broken to Brown he reportedly threw over chairs, shouted and screamed. Emerging to the press however he smiled widely and stated "This announcement is a perfect reason to celebrate democracy, because no matter who wins the race and becomes PM democracy is the true winner."
Gillian Duffy also spoke to the cameras saying "All them bloody politicians, none of 'em know anything. I'll soon put this country right, just vote for me."
The latest opinion poll shows Ms Duffy leading with 33 points seeing The Torys and the Lib Dems fall into joint second and Labours popularity now being lumped in with the 'other' parties.
