Canvassing in the hail storm…

So this afternoon canvassing was unceremoniously interrupted by several hailstorms, but finally all cleared out and got to speak with about 40 of our Sheridan Estate residents. Fortunately we have an incredible number of residents who can really see the players for who they are, and it is really great to have this number of supporters!!!

If you see any Red Sense, call me…

Reading the paper tonight on the way back from London, it is very hard to see any sense from anyone on the “Red” side of the aisle. Today the dweeb takes out a full page in the Financial Times quoting 6 CEOs who support them, and by lunch 4 of them go on record that they don’t support him at all… Now wouldn’t you think to at least ask these guys what they think first??? Ed, just who do you think is going to pay for all this largesse you propose? The fairy godmother??? 

Time for everyone to stop slagging and start talking some plain common sense…

Windswept day on Surrey Heath

One of those amazing English driving rain windswept mornings, but the dogs took no notice… Unfortunately just not a good day for canvassing. Yesterday was good though, out with my friend Charles Barbour on the Sheridan Road Estate…  So, today just wasn’t good, but then it wasn’t very good for any of the others either, but tomorrow is another day…

AGM for Surrey Heath Conservatives

Great Annual Meeting of the Surrey Heath Conservative Association last night. We are one of the top Conservative Associations in the entire UK, and privileged to hear from our MP Michael Gove taking us through the work that needs to be done in this next 40 days of the campaign.  We get down to the business end of it today…

And the race is on…

So, now, as of yesterday, all of us candidates are officially candidates, and now the race is on. To celebrate this first we went out on our first day or canvassing. so up above is the map of Frimley for those wondering about our lovely village, and we were out on Bailey Close. Great conversations with great people.  It has been great representing Frimley Green in my first time as a Councillor, but looking forward to the chance to represent the residents of Frimley this time. When you just live down the street, and you work in the middle of the village, it gives residents easy access to come and see you and discuss the plans of the Council and where we are going…

The start at a National level saw Cameron and Milliband slug it out with these BBC journalists, but not head-to-head. If I were them I would appear in front of anyone but the morons from the BBC. They were on some moral crusade to try and make themselves look important, not to help the voters decide who should be the next Prime Minister. Of course both sides claimed victory, and of course no one won.  There were some real losers, however, the British people who wasted 90 minutes of their time watching two incredibly self aggrandised morons who cared more about their own drama than that of the voters. The worst was when Paxman tried to cast the aspersion on the entire economic recovery on the presence of 1 out of 50 people working on 0 hour contracts, calling the whole recovery a failure… Anyway, a good time was had by all, and on we go…
