More like April "Taking the Piss" Day

The Eastern Daily Press reported yesterday on their website that Dr Ian Gibson, Labour MP for Norwich North, is urging Charles Clarke, Labour MP for Norwich South to stand for the Labour Leadership.

This would be funny were it not for the fact that it is well known, and I have heard this from Labour Councillors, Lib Dems, journalists and two Norfolk MP's that Ian Gibson and Charles Clarke cannot and do not get on at all. Indeed, mutual loathing might be a more appropriate description of their relationship, so I am led to believe.

Any news of this kind, assuming that it is not an April fool prank has to be seen therefore as Ian Gibson taking the piss out of Clarke in a big way.
