In case you hadn't noticed, I'm a paid up Liberal Democrat. And today, to mark the calling of the 2010 General Election, I headed up to Watford to help out on Sal Brinton's campaign. When I say help out, of course I mean a couple of streets of leaflet delivering, a bit of envelope stuffing (with Baroness Scott, random but she is really very nice) and hold a really big sign (my campaign speciality) during a quick visit by party leader Nick Clegg. Well it didn't seem all that quick when I was holding that bloody sign (Hugh Annand did try to help but he was quickly pulled away for more important duties)!
Plus good to see an old friend, and meet a few more. One thing you can never say is that Lib Dems aren't a bloody welcoming bunch!
Good luck to Sal Brinton, check out her site here.
