Rallying the troops...

It has come to Lobbydog’s attention that Downing Street is running a special series of meetings with MPs in a bid to rally the party and get the PLP on message.

The meetings are taking place on a region by region basis, with all the Labour members from each going in at a time.

They sit around the cabinet table with the PM, who then gives a speech before outlining areas of policy where Labour “differentiates” from the Tories.

The idea is that these are the lines they will be able to push on the campaign trail, to constituents and to their local papers.

Does this mean the election is closer than we think?
