Labour is giving up on vulnerable seats and diverting resources to defend constituencies in its heartlands, according to MPs.
Serious financial problems have left labour having to reorganise their election strategy and some MPs are saying labour's HQ us refusing to help seats with majorities of less than 3,000. They have identified about 60 - all in England.
Barbara Follett (above) is one of those at risk but her wealthy husband will possibly come to her aid, not for the first time.

So Scotland, gird your loins because labour will be throwing much of their £18m campaign chest at you it would seem. A strange campaign chest though with £2m of it being a loan converted to a donation and £15m in borrowing and credit facilities. Gordon Brown, man of prudence, is leader of a party with £15m of debt. What would the country look like if we had a spendthrift as PM?
