Matt & Dave show rolls up in Southampton!

The Matt & Dave show...note wide staring eyes of rabid candidate...

David Cameron's visit to Southampton went quite well with press interest from the BBC, the Daily Echo and The Daily Mail. After cycling down Roman Road in support of the Conservative candidate in Bassett and meeting local candidates, giving a press interview to local BBC TV and then radio, he then went to a reception for Conservative activists in Romsey.
I was quite impressed by his speech which in style was more conversational than barnstorming. He took a few questions including one from me on how to keep traditional Conservatives on-board while appealing to the centre ground. His reply to this is that the ideas he is expounding are actually profoundly Conservative in the one nation tradition and ideals such as fighting grime and crime were the sort of non-ideological issues that Conservatives embrace and implement effectively at local government level. Good point!
