Tuesday started with a drive up to the North of the constituency. because I was invited to Wilby primary school, near Stradbroke. I met the head who showed me around. It is a small rural school with just 60 pupils and a nursery class, which is shared with a neighbouring school. I was shown round the school and then questioned by some of the school children. They asked questions on a wide range of subjects including schools, crime (there hasn't been a recorded crime in the nearby village of Wingfield for five years), hospitals, Iraq, stealth taxes, immigration, smoking and global warming. Very good questions.
I drove back via Framlingham and had some time on the phone. Was on my own as my agent was dropping poster boards and leaflets across mid Suffolk. Dropped more Rushmere leaflets at a local party member and then reported for canvassing at Whitehouse. However, the campaign team were keen to deliver as many election addresses for the County Council elections as possible. So in the spirit of teamwork and collective endeavour, I went leafleting.
Then had a chat with councillor for Bramford and the candidate for Gipping Valley, just to keep abreast of what's going on and the latest on Snoasis.
