Inflated expectations?

Text settings

I have just spoken to a senior Labour staffer (not Douglas Alexander!) who tells me they are seeing the "mirror image" of what I am hearing from the Tories. That is to say: high turnout in the Labour supporting inner city areas, much better than they thought. There is an obvious risk that Labour only looks at zones 1-2, the Tories at Greater London and both get inflated expectations.
