Friday 9th April - 27 days to polling day

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.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
