First time here and what a lovely city. Last night, I went to Old Trafford for a drinks reception (only water for me as I do not like Champagne). It is a massive stadium and I took a few pics which I will put on the blog later in the week. PoliticsHome talked about a massive polling exercise that they had carried out in various constituencies. They predict that I was narrowly fail to win Feltham & Heston next year. This demonstrates two things – (1) I need to prove people wrong and (2) whatever polls say, Feltham & Heston will be very close indeed.
I am hoping to meet up with Rene Kinzett tonight. He and I have gone in opposite directions – he was born in Feltham and is now a Councillor in Swansea. I was born in neighbouring Llanelli and, of course, Feltham is my home. He is a former Lib-Dem and I was in the Labour Party in my youth. I look forward to see him, especially as he continues to take a big interest in Feltham.
