I thought I’d heard a lot of political doublespeak in my time.
But this ‘Negative Flakeage Rate’ is a new one on me.
What that means is instead of people promising to volunteer (and then not bothering), instead people are volunteering and persuading friends to volunteer too.
This guy is Obama’s National Field Director, Jon Carson, and he’s pretty happy with the Obama campaign especially in the marginal ‘toss-up’ states.
It just makes me wonder about the Glenrothes by-election.
Will Labour or the SNP be wondering about their flakeage rates among their voters?
