Flying Start in Hampshire

Up at the crack of dawn yesterday to travel to the Rose Bowl for launch of Lib Dem campaign in the south east with Charles Kennedy. Had been given the task of chairing the press conference which was much better attended (by press) than the equivalent conference four years ago.

First question was about Paul Marsden but Charles merely wished him well. The interesting thing is that he had only applied to rejoin and it wasn't clear whether the Labour party were having him back. I was dying to know what the Labour Chief whip thought about the whole thing.
