Recently I was out in St Ives, making a video for use on Facebook. A total stranger interrupted to say how glad he was to see me out campaigning. He explained that he’s always voted Conservative, but is appalled at the way things have been going around Brexit, the lack of support from Mr Djanogly our local MP and the behaviour of the Conservative party recently. He said he would be voting Liberal Democrat, for the first time in his life.
Canvassing recently in St Neots, a grand total of two people told me they were planning to vote Conservative.
These are both signs of a huge change going on, as both the Conservatives and Labour leap to extremes. They’re a sign of growing support for Liberal Democrats as a credible alternative --- and the prospect of Huntingdon Constituency returning a Liberal Democrat MP in December.
