Taking to the streets
On Saturday David Gold and the Conservative campaign team set up stall in Eltham Town Centre. The Labour Party and Clive Efford were also there, and it was good to be able to take our case to the streets and for the choice at the election to be on show, as we handed out our respective leaflets and talked to shoppers. If elections were won with balloons, I think we had the upper hand, and I must confess I got some satisfaction from the fact that Labour packed up after a few hours and left us to it. Our campaign has real momentum, and there was a good level of support from passers-by, who raised issues from litter bins to nuclear weapons.
