Saturday 17 April – Velkomin til Íslands

Given my taxi services to the Tory frontbench, I’ve been – let’s say – a bit more careful about keeping my car spick and span of late. One friend of mine saw it in the back of a regional TV news bulletin and rang me up: “Have you bought another new car?! It’s very shiny.” So last night I know the car was in fairly good nick. This morning it was covered in reddish soot, particularly the section pointing into the wind – as you can see: IMG_4436comp

If my guest today noticed the soot, he was far too polite to say. So this morning I was driving Grant Shapps to Tynemouth, indeed this picture shows us in Wendy Morton’s nerve centre, just prior to him visiting the Conservative Party’s stall in Bedford Street. He is the shadow Housing mininster. Trivia alert: Grant is the cousin of Mick Jones of The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite. In the photo background there is, well, a photo gallery. Just by Grant’s left shoulder is a pic of me in a blue T shirt, with Wendy. Good to see this election campaign has made me lose a bit of weight since then.

The afternoon I was supposed to be playing rugby against a touring side from the United States – that volcano snuffed that one out too, they are still in Maine. So instead I delivered some leaflets off in some hard to reach areas such as Deadwater, Yarrow and Catcleugh.
