Blair – help or hindrance?

Saturday / Sunday / Monday – a blur and a whirl of canvassing and stuffing envelopes.

I am going out each time with a different ward – good to be helping each team in turn (and to visit all the different parts of my constituency) – but it’s also a good way to get an overall feel of how it’s going.

Labour supporters clearly very demoralised – and Blair’s election visit to Haringey doesn’t seem to have helped. After all, the disillusioned Labour voters who swung to vote for me last year want to see Blair gone – so reminding people that a vote for Labour is a vote for Blair isn’t really a vote winner for them!
