Another campaign day in Blaydon
We had another campaign day today in Blaydon constituency. Some of us were stuffing envelopes for our next direct mail delivery, some of us were canvassing, and some of us (me included) were doing both. We were in Dunston this afternoon for canvassing which threw up a few interesting points: those who receive our email newsletter were much more likely to vote for us and to do so at both the local and general elections; for the first time in ages, no one mentioned my self-sufficiency activities; and a former Labour branch officer we found was not impressed with Ed Miliband. No surprise there!
