Courtesy of Channel 4 News, this is last night's interview with Jim Devine, MP for Livingston, Scotland.
Jim Devine is a former psychiatric nurse and union official who served as Robin Cook's election agent for 22 years. When the former Foreign Secretary died in 2005, Mr Devine was a natural choice to contest the by-election in his Livingston constituency four months later. He saw the party's majority of 13,000 under Robin Cook cut to 2,680.
Many say labour supporters will vote for 'a monkey wearing a red rosette'.
Mr Devine is a perfect example. How this man was ever selected as a candidate, far less elected, for Westminster I will never understand.
