The campaign is going at full pelt here in Leicester South. The campaign headquarters was packed yesterday with volunteers who’ve turned out in force to support Parmjit and the mood was optimistic.
The city is swimming in LibDem diamonds. I’ve spotted only one or two posters for the Labour candidate and nothing from the Tories. Labour have been putting out some particularly dirty literature (personal and misleading attacks on the other parties, not top shelf magazines). I know we have a habit of saying “the Tories can’t win here” (and that’s true over so much of the country), but all the signs are that the Conservatives will come a poor third, while it’s going to be neck and neck between us and Labour right up to polling day.
