The pile of Focuses has gone
The large pile of Focuses that had been staring at me has now been delivered. 400 for the Whickham part of my ward took me 2 hours to deliver this afternoon. Job done. It now clears the deck to go to Pelaw and Heworth ward in Gateshead tomorrow for our action day there. I think we have a load of letters to deliver. The ward used to be rock-solid Labour until 2000 when we won it. We then picked up the other two Labour seats in subsequent elections. Unfortunately, they have subsequently swung back to Labour though their majority last year was not so comfortable. We have no intention of standing back and letting Labour continue to hold on there. Hence the action day there tomorrow.
