Monday 3 May – Tories 7, Labour 4, LibDem 0

This is the weekend round up. On Saturday we spent the morning in Ovingham and Wylam, and the afternoon at the top end of Hexham’s Beaumont Park. Sundays have been frowned about in Tory circles. I can well remember as a kid seeing Tory campaign calenders with Sundays blocked out with the phrase “Dies non” and getting somewhat worried – in my state school we only did Latin from the age of 13. But with the stakes so high I helped to leaflet Castlefields in Prudhoe; and in fact nearly 2000 households were leafleted that Sunday in 4 separate locations.

For Bank Holiday Monday we decided not to knock on doors until after lunch. I leafleted Prudhoe earlier in the morning, then seven of us leafleted Hexham’s Priestland area, tripping over another candidate for the first time, in this case Antoine Tinnion from Labour, who is actually quite nice. Which begs the question, where are the LibDems? After all their posters claim they are “winning here” and their dodgy statistics put them into a self declared second place apparently. Frankly that is simply unsupported by their efforts on the ground.

Our biggest canvass today was Allendale (and a leaflet drop in Allenheads), where we were somewhat mob-handed. IMG_4623compWith me taking the picture, and Anthony Braithwaite joining at lunch, we were a magnificent 10. We rounded off with Corbridge canvass and ended up in The Angel.
