Campaigning in Manchester

On Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th October 2006 I was out campaigning in Manchester. There’s a by-election in a Liberal Democrat held seat and the Party are working hard to gain the seat.

We had a campaign launch on the Saturday for next May’s elections (like Christmas campaign launches get earlier every year!) Hazel Blears gave a short speech and then 60 plus Labour canvassers were out on the streets.

I managed to recruit a new member but star prize goes to Alastair from Moss Side who knocked on the door of a voter from French Africa – so proceeded to canvass him in French and got him to vote Labour – a touch of real class.

Anyway, the Labour candidate is Julie Read – a local woman and a good campaigner and the election is today so anyone who can get along to help ring Mike Amesby on 07876 032641.
