Yes, Labour is in the worst kind of turmoil - but don't expect Zac Goldsmith to be able to turn it to his advantage. His overall problem is rather neatly exemplified by the above picture: will Londoners vote for a bloke who can't even hold a pint glass, let alone drink its contents? Fair enough, Zac may not be a beer man - Gordon Brown only ever drank wine or champagne - but in which case why do a photocall in a pub? With Boris Johnson?

Yet more proof that, while Zac hired Lynton Crosby's firm, the Wizard from Oz hasn't been nearly involved enough.
