"Cruelly" inflicting Focus deliveries

I awoke this morning to the voice of Labour’s Tom Watson MP explaining why falling to 3rd place and a reduction in the Labour share of the vote in the Witney by-election was a good result for Labour. He had a go at the Lib Dems for sending 100 peers to a constituency he claimed we knew we couldn’t win. He said it was “cruel”! I have lots of bundles of Focuses still to deliver so I’m happy to cruelly inflict them on anyone who wants a bit of exercise on local streets! The fact is however that we had a pretty good result on Thursday in Witney, caused by the resignation of David Cameron as he makes a quick getaway from politics. Rising from 4th to 2nd place and 7% to 30% was a healthy performance. Watching UKIP collapse into 5th place was especially enjoyable.

We need to avoid reading too much into one by-election result. Nevertheless, it was progress but there is still a long way to go.

And if you want to deliver some Focuses, get in touch.......
