Lord Clement-Jones writes…Out and about on the doorstep

Tim Clement-Jones in WatfordFar be it from me (or at their peril anyone else!) to ignore an injunction from our General Election Chair Paddy Ashdown, so my New Year’s resolution has been to commit every Friday up to the start of the campaign proper to campaigning in a target or held seat. All the polling data shows that we have good prospects in a number of target seats.

There was an excellent response and name recognition for Sandy Walkington on my first Friday in St Albans, a constituency I helped in when he first fought it thirty years ago, and with a terrific local team. Last Friday I was with Dorothy Thornhill’s team (see pic) in both ends of the Watford constituency (it takes in part of Three Rivers) and it was great to see, and campaign alongside, really committed councillors and activists.

I have also been canvassing with Cllr Jeanette Aron who is also up for election this May and it is clear from the response that there is terrific goodwill on the doorstep. A great antidote to the doom and gloom of some of the national coverage of the party.

I have to say I’m looking forward to my next dose of campaign tonic this Friday in Maidstone!

    Reference your article on the current Forum newspaper.
    I pay to keep my verge neat. If I find drivers parking on the verge I will explain that it is unnecessary and they should park in the kerbside. I was told this morning that they parked within the white line. I explained that that was painted years ago and considered a waste of money, and was not provided for car users to park.

    Could this be the reason why so many people create unsightly mud piles on the verges?
