Great buzz at Ealing Southall
I have just spent a wonderful day at Ealing Southall. My photo shows some of the recent leaflets which have been distributed, as well as moi, in the HQ.
It was marvellous to see the largest HQ in LibDem by-election history with a real buzz about it, with Nigel Bakhai and his team firing on all cylinders.
Even though today was a rainy Monday, the visitors' book was choc-a-bloc with volunteers who were out and about doing residents' surveys, canvassing, delivering leaflets etc. There were many MPs' names in the book and I saw at least six MPs coming and going at the HQ.
I carried out Community Surveys with Imran Ali and Lady Rennard. I also had a few "breathers" doing clerical work alongside the likes of Don Foster MP, who is a very cheery fellow.
All in all, it was a very satisfying day, despite doing a drowned rat impersonation at one point, and it was very uplifting to see such a vibrant and efficient by-election operation in full swing.
