Lib Dem candidate Kelly-Marie Blundell to walk tightrope at Moscow State Circus

Kelly-Marie and friendKelly-Marie Blundell is nothing if not courageous and tenacious. For those of you who don’t know her, she’s our candidate in Guildford, a member of the party’s Federal Policy Committee and prominent member of the Social Liberal Forum. She’s been behind many of the excellent motions on welfare reform and food banks which have been passed at Liberal Democrat conference in the last few years.

She’s leading a lively campaign in Guildford, a seat held between 2001 and 2005 for the party by Sue Doughty. Just the other day, I saw that she was committed to many hustings meetings. But she’s managed to fit in fulfilling a lifelong ambition. Tomorrow morning at 9am, she’ll be doing this:

Clearly we are putting our parliamentary candidates under too much stress if this is what they do for a rest!

I asked her why she wanted to do it:

I’ve always been fascinated by trapeze and high wire in the circus. The human capaibiltiies are amazing. My brother was a junior gymnast and I always wanted a go!

There will be some media coverage of this, so we will keep you posted.

Kelly-Marie has all our support as she undertakes this daring venture. If you admire her courage, you might like to make a donation to her campaign.ย
