Haltwhistle Market

Spent the morning in the Haltwhistle Market talking to shoppers and passers by – as well as stallholders. Great responses from almost everybody.

Met several ex-patients and many more besides. The range of topics covered was huge and the level of interest was high. There’s definitely more ‘undecideds’ about than the conventional parties might wish for at this stage.

A couple of BNP supporters, who expressed strong antipathy to the Tories, were highly indignant to find that their candidate had had previous links with them.

We fortified ourselves with excellent Eccles cakes from the stall next door and dispensed balloons as though they were going out of fashion. Badges and leaflets disappeared in bulk – to the extent that we are going to run out completely any day now.
