Election called

This was hardly a surprise but the fact that Tony wanted to launch his campaign from Weymouth was a bit of a turn up for the books and threw the media into a bit of a spin.BBC wanted to do a reaction piece for local launch which went OK - apart from the fact it all had to be redone because there was a fault with the first tape.
These things have a knock on effect on the whole day as I was then late for my meeting with a couple of "caged bird" enthusiasts and only just made it back to the office in time to go canvassing.
Diet to pot already as lunch was a packet of hula hoops on the run. Had been asked (not sure whether jokingly) why I needed lunch breaks during campaign. Hey, it's not necessarily lunch but it is useful catch up time.
