The BNP are racist fascists. The Labour party, Lib dems and Conservative are all status quo. English dems and Independent are far too weak. That leaves UKIP and that is why I help Andrew Townsend. :-)

If the Tories come to power the country deserves all it gets. Although not ideal Gordon Brown has thw country at heart.

We were out on Tuesday Evening in Langworthy canvassing on David Henry's campaign. We came across Hazel with 3 activist (that she has dragged in from out of the Area). She made a quick exit when she saw our Hazel Must Go Leaflets. Anyhow vote for David Henry and Andrew Behan in the Ordsall Ward. We are very happy to knock on your door for a chat unlike Hazel.

Thursday, 22nd April 2010 My daughter came to visit me tonight before going to work. Hazel Blears and supporters came to canvass in the road (the first time we've ever seen her) and parked either side of my daughter's car blocking her in. She had to wait nearly an hour before they returned and she could leave, now late, for her minimum wage job. This kind of lack of consideration is hardly likely to persuade a first-time voter to cast her vote for Labour - they could at least have left her a tin-opener to enable her to get out!
