Election Day -12: Sex and Gambling

with 3 comments

Well, that headline should get a few more readers, but don’t get excited – the revelations won’t come until after I’m elected as MP for Westminster North…

First of all, another great day’s canvassing, delivering and everything else involved in running a campaign, with yet another record turnout of helpers. While visiting a newsagents in Westbourne Grove, I got a hello and a smile from someone I’m 99% sure was the sex writer and TV personality Tracey Cox – I hasten to add there were lots of other people out there in Bayswater introducing themselves and saying encouraging things.

When I got home after a very long day’s traipsing the streets, I found my own election address in the letterbox, at last. There’s something surreal about finding a letter addressed to you from yourself. Once I’d got over the “do I really look like that?” moment I was pretty pleased with it. Well done Ben the agent.

And as for the gambling, a few weeks ago Ladbrokes had me at 100-1, and now they’ve slashed the odds to 12-1. In another 12 days, who can tell what the odds might be?!

    It seems Ms Cash has had a lot of ‘Cash’ from a certain Lord to throw around this constituency!!!

    Keep up the good work!
