Sunday began with an outing to Shiremoor to hear John Prescott speak in support of a fourth Labour term and to campaign on behalf of excellent local Tynemouth MP, Alan Campbell.
Nice to see that he realises that the best way to save the country from the Tories is to campaign in a marginal and not waste his time “outside the marginals”. He even got his photograph taken with the Gateshead Millennium Bridge in the background.
The amount of campaigning required to “turn” Hexham (which has been Tory since 1924) could help defend many Labour marginals or even turn over several Conservative marginals.
Its a pity that’s the way the world is; it would be nice to think that all votes are equal.
