Saturday 26 January – Shortlisted for Berwick

After a nerve wracking afternoon at the Blue Bell Hotel in Belford, I made it through to the final of the Berwick Open Primary. We had to do a 5 minute speech in front of the Berwick upon Tweed Conservative Association’s Executive Committee, then go through a question and answer session. At the end of that session I was told that  I had been chosen to go through to the Open Primary in Alnwick. Lucille Nicholson was also selected, and Anne-Marie Trevelyan gets a free pass into the final by dint of being the previous candidate. Two other candidates – both of whom I liked – were thanked for their efforts, but were given regrets.

I must have made a good impression, though I only awarded myself a B- for my efforts. Not sure why it was so nerve wracking either – I recently addressed a big meeting of German trade unionists (in schoolboy German!) and that was a lot easier.

Right – time to hit the campaign trail!
