The Horse with no Name

My constituency is a close run thing now - we've always been a strong Tory hold - Ann Widdecombe was MP, but the new MP, Helen Grant, keeps putting her foot in it, with expenses, comments about passports, women's sport, a lot of people have lost faith in her.

Anyway, I've now had 2 doorsteps from the Lib Dem candidate. Clearly this is a constituency they think they can win. They came close last time - the local councillor/candidate helped Joanne Lumley win the Gurkha appeal, but this time, I don't know.

The guy who doorstepped me, is a big hitter as well - a former Sunday Times senior journalist, and speechwriter. Jasper Gerrard, who's taken a year unpaid leave to fight for the seat.

UKIP won't get anywhere here, but maybe it could be a close run thing.
