Monday 7 September – London

Chris, Simon and Rob in Kennington

Chris, Simon and Rob in Kennington

Today and tomorrow I’m down in London for some meetings. Tonight I met up with Rob Hayward, who I have known for something like 15 years and a friend of his, Simon Jones. Rob used to be Conservative MP for Bristol Kingswood, though I know him more from a shared love of rugby; Simon is the¬†Prospective¬†Parliamentary Candidate for Dagenham and Rainham. He is trying to unseat John Cruddas, seen by many in the Labour Party as the guardian of the True Faith. If Simon unseats John Cruddas – a tough challenge but definitely possible – then the course of Labour’s history will almost certainly alter as a consequence.¬† Simon is also razor sharp and very witty, so the voters of Dagenham and Rainham are in for a sparkling election campaign. Simon’s website is here. Our venue was the White Hart in Kennington, a good gastropub with friendly Kiwi staff.
