Glasgow East - Labour in chaos

. Labour has failed to select a candidate in Glasgow East after the favourite, Local councillor George Ryan, pulled out citing family reasons. Another local councillor, Steven Purcell, is expected to take his place.

Although Glasgow East is the safest Labour seat in Scotland, with a majority of 13,500, the prospects of anything other than a smooth victory must surely be unnerving Downing Street after losing Crewe and Nantwich and the fifth place humiliation of Henley.

Could Glasgow East turn against Labour and deepen the crisis of Gordon Brown's leadership??
