I'm right, you know …

Nothing New From Lord Rennard

After some gruelling campaigning in sleepy south Oxfordshire villages and countryside, punctuated by painfully agreeable pub lunches, I have come to the reasoned conclusion that the once great LibDem campaign machine has run out of ideas. Surprise is often the key element in any form of contest, but the Lib’s efforts in Henley have come from the same dog-eared textbook they have been using for over a decade.

The leaflet printed in blue, the lifestyle magazine that feigns independent editorial consideration before backing the Lib Dem candidate on every page, the photo montage leaflet, the reasoned presentation of Lib Dem policy … OK, so I was joking about that last one.

The good people of the Henley constituency have well and truly reached the “not more election rubbish” stage as I did my duty in the villages of Watlington division yesterday, but perhaps they could take pity on us activists – at least they only have a few days left of it, we now have to squeeze Haltemprice and Howden, local council by-elections and soon, Winchester into our schedules. The fun just never stops.

Anyway, enough of all this – there are far more important things to think about, like catching the new series of Top Gear tonight.
