Friday 9th April - 27 days to polling day
09/04/2010 21:51:00

 
 

Today, we started knocking on people's doors to ask for their support. We spent the day in Addington Village, along Gravel Hill and in Forestdale and had a really warm response. If Andrew Pelling was going to get a lot of support, this is one of the areas where you would expect it to come from - it's part of the ward he used to represent as a councillor and he is a member of the congregation at St Mary's, Addington Village. As you would expect, there were lots of people who thought he was a good MP and sympathised with what he has been through but the vast majority of them understood that if they voted for him they would simply split the anti-Labour vote, risking getting a Labour MP and five more years of Gordon Brown.

Nationally, David Cameron launched our plans for National Citizen Service - a voluntary national service programme for 16 year-olds - with Sir Michael Caine. You can learn more about the idea here.
