Just back from Ealing Southall, I was person 101 to walk through Ealing Campaign HQ doors today.
Unfortunately, Tony Lit and I couldn't get to meet because he was so busy and pulled from pillar to post across the constituency. As I got to one place, he was like the Scarlet Pimpernel and was dragged off elsewhere. I know how he feels. It's a tough life being a candidate; you work 24/7, 7 days a week throughout an entire campaign. You grab sleep, food and drink when you can, never see your family, and go through amazing peaks and troughs throughout.You are convinced one day you will win and the next you will lose.
I have only got one message for Tony - you are going to win. The organisation and effort being put into this campaign is second to none, but Tony needs more help, your help. If you want to see a Conservative victory in Ealing Southall, then get yourself down there now. Tony is waiting for you and needs you. Your country needs you!
Ok maybe that's a bit over the top, however, the more people on the ground, the more certainty of a victory.
Phone 020 8574 8706 to get involved in Tony's campaign.

Having grown up in the Ealing Southall constituency, I have to say a Conservative win there would be something approaching a miracle. But good luck to everyone involved, miracles have been known!

Isn't it about time things were worked s that candidates do not have such a miserable time? Most of us long for more "ordinary people" in parliament -- tolerating a process that no ordinary family can cope with is not helping us get varied representation.
