Election up and running

Matthew Hancock and the team at the launch of his Election Campaign on Brandon Market

Bright and Early this morning I picked up our excellent candidate Matthew Hancock at his house in Thurlow and we drove up to Brandon to launch his election campaign; Matthew chose Brandon as he wanted to meet as many people as possible to hear their views on the Brandon By-pass proposals and to assure everyone he met that he will be working to secure the funding for the A11 dualling once the Inspector has presented his report. We then moved on to Haverhill and a team of 14 canvassed across Haverhill until darkness.

Also heard today that the Liberals have opened their campaign centre for West Suffolk  in Bury St Edmunds. Bury is a lovely town, but it hasn’t been part of the West Suffolk for over 12 years!  Maybe this basic lack of local knowledge can be blamed on the fact that the Liberal Democrat candidate does not live in the Constituency, and is a councillor in another County.

If the Lib Dem candidate doesn’t even know where the constituency boundary is, how can she possibly understand the issues that matter here!  You simply couldn’t make it up could you! But lets be fair she does have to drive throught the Constituency on the A14 from her home in Cambridge to Bury, so I suppose that counts!
