Another day spent in Addiscombe - joined this morning by Syed Kamall MEP among others - before house meetings on the Whitgift estate and in Shirley Park.
The news today was dominated by a big jump in the polls for the Liberal Democrats, presumably as a result of the leaders' debate. I have to say we didn't see any evidence of that in Addiscombe today but then according to the bookies and based on the result last time this seat is a two horse race between us and Labour - the Liberal Demoracts don't have a single councillor on Croydon Council. So here in Croydon Central if you want a change of government or even if you want a hung parliament* (which personally I think would be the worst outcome for the country), you need to vote Conservative.
* If Labour hold on to seats like Croydon Central they will have a majority in the next Parliament.
