KNIGHTY KNIGHT IN KENT
THE Conservatives may talk about Hampstead and Kilburn being one of their key targets at the general election, if not the main one. But, for special occasions, permission notes can be obtained by volunteers to leave the local battleground here and head to Thanet to join the piefight there with Nigel Farage and Ukip. We know this, because former councillor Chris ‘Knighty’ Knight brings news from his own excursion to Kent.
From the scene, he sends back a picture of an old friend, yup, Piers Wauchope, the former leader of the Camden Conservatives now very much part of the Ukip army, wrapped around the pages of the local paper.
PAID DELIVERIES? GET A GRIP
AFTER a tweet appeared this afternoon claiming Labour are using paid deliveries in Hampstead and Kilburn, it seemed only fair to check with Tulip and her team to see whether they had resorted to such methods to get as many leaflets as possible stuffed through letterboxes. “Get a grip”, an aide responded, unable to contain their exasperation. They ask the ladies and gentlemen of the jury to note that the picture makes it impossible to identify the Pick Tulip operative.
