Notes from the writer/LibDem parliamentary candidate for Somerton & Frome

Election Day -16: Meeting the BBC and my Conservative opponent.

leave a comment »

Yesterday evening was entertaining – you couldn’t make it up. The Conservatives and the Lib Dems often see each other while out campaigning, and I’ve bumped into Karen Buck a couple of times, but up to now Joanne Cash and I have missed each other on the streets of Westminster.

Until last night. Our Lib Dem team started at one end of the street, and soon we saw the Tories coming from the other, with none of other than Joanne Cash among them. As the BBC were filming us Lib Dems doing our work, the inevitable happened, and when the two parties met halfway up the street, the cameras were there to film it. I don’t know what the BBC will end up showing, but all I can say is we didn’t stand around chatting!

This blog is now being read by a record number of people. Hope you’ve enjoyed this little bit of light relief after the factual content of the last few days!
