Brecon diary: The rain stopped

I’m enjoying camping just outside Llandrindod Wells in beautiful surroundings. The photo below shows the first tent I have erected since I took my Duke of Edinburgh award training some 45 years ago! My “yellow peril” vehicle is just on the left hand side of the photo.

While not delivering literature for Jane Dodds, I have been binge-listening to 20 episodes of The Archers, which seems appropriate for my bucolic environment.

I went down to the Llandrindod Wells HQ first thing and was delighted to meet our candidate Jane Dodds, who came in to thank all the volunteers.

There was then a full day of leafletting and canvassing, right across the constituency.

I’ll be getting an early night tonight for a very early start tomorrow, and the final push.

Please come to the constituency to help tomorrow if you can. The weather should be good.

Or please use the VPB for help the Get out the Vote operation.

All the details are here.

    Good luck to all tomorrow.

  • Make no mistake this is one of the most significant by elections of all time. It’s a 2 horse race between us and the Tories. If we take the seat it’s a massive boost to remainers and reduces overall majority to just 1. I see no way that the Tories will survive a vote of no confidence let alone parliament allowing a no deal Brexit. If the conservatives hold the seat it’s a massive boost for Boris Johnson and the brexiteers , we will hear the usual “will of the people” and the Lib Dem revival will be derailed . Make no mistake it’s a must win for the Lib Dem’s and remain. Good Luck all x

    Please be nice to everyone.
    We may need to win this seat twice in quick succession.

  • Well done you! And glamping too! My hero!
