Positive Press from Tory Supporting Newspaper

A friend of mine drew attention to a big spread in the Tory supporting Sunday Times. It is about the new election battleground created by the debates and the growing popularity of Liberal Democrats. It highlights Blaydon as a "key marginal" where the Liberal Democrats are a "serious threat"

It states that Blaydon is "the best chance of a gain in the Tyneside conurbation" and this [seat] could fall"

encouraging stuff but its votes in the box that count. The campaign is going well but it is really important that people get out and vote to make it happen. People with postal votes not yet completed should probably now take them along to a polling station. Also yesterday, I was asked if you can vote without a polling card. You can, all you need to do is turn up at the polling station and tell them who you are, subject to a quick check for irregularities.

    Good to see that we may becoming a marginal - perhaps that means we may get some greater attention from politicians of all parties. I have lived on Barmoor Lane for 8 years and not once has a politician or activist of any party knocked on my door to seek my views at any election local, general or european. I voted labour in 1997 and 2001 but Lib dem in 2005. My wife is life long labour but seriously considering a vote for you. time to hit barmoor lane i think.
