- Excellent coverage of our suggestion for a Maidstone Pound in the KM last week. The reporter wanted Ann Widddecombe's face on it - I'd prefer Wat Tyler.
- The Sun apparently mentioned the Maidstone Pound - they liked the Ann Widdecombe angle! The Mirror and some bloggers are less sure...
- I was interviewed on Radio Kent's drivetime last night and tried to explain local economics in 2 minutes to people sitting in traffic wanting a cuppa - not easy.
- Our latest leaflet has gone out across Fant Ward - I'm really pleased with it
- Posters have started appearing in windows
- Met some of the Conservatives out canvassing on Saturday
- Just 8 days left till polling day
- Response of the door step started well and is getting better each time we go out.
- Lots more canvassing planned for the next 8 days
- Press release issued yesterday about how unemployment has doubled in the past 12 month in Maidstone and why the council shouldn't increase it further by making cuts.
- A big thanks to the team so far - not long to go now.
