No matter where I roam

Settled then. We’re off to the spot (many thanks to Andrew for telling me where it is). This is a once in a by-election offer. Campaign workers from all political parties put down you posters and leaflets, switch off your phones, turn off the print presses. Tonight only, let’s meet. Let’s talk about the good old days. The days when Paul Weller was good and you could still buy fish tail parkas in Millets for less than twenty quid. Why, I’ll even buy the first drinks.

Hartlepool speaks

Well sort of. Your guide to the Hartlepool by-election. Not sure where this is going to go politically but it seems lively enough at the moment. Now, where is that place that does Jam songs again?

Peace in our time

The reference to “scabrous” lib dem watch tickles me. Note to self: stop eating doughnuts in by-elections.

I’m sticking with the truce by the way. No mention of the lib dem candidate for Hartlepool will be made on this site. A few cheeky scamps have been trying to provoke a row in the comments section but this is going to be a liberal democrat candidate for hartlepool free zone.

Life is good

This is a great holiday. The sun is shining. The campaign centre is up and running. There are 30 thirsty volunteers looking for a night out in Hartlepool. Anyone know any good places?

The spat that took place on this site during the Hodge Hill by-election was fun. I suspect though, that people were getting bored by the end of it. So I make an offer to the hardy Liberal Democrats who were fiercely posting comments, in particular, Daniel Brett and Sonofglyndwar. I promise not to mention your candidate in any way if you promise to calm the commenting. Only a suggestion. Remember though, that my platform is bigger than yours. Have a good weekend.
