Worcester Conservatives - Blog
Oooooo, Margaret Harper has updated her blog with a ground shattering revelation, one woman in Worcester has asked her for, nay demanded, a leaflet because she "really wanted to get rid of Mr. Blair"
I've asked them to add a comments feature, but don't hold your breath.

Who should I vote for?
Your expected outcome:
Your actual outcome:
You should vote: Liberal Democrat
|Labour -50 |
|Conservative -49 |
| Liberal Democrat 78|
| UK Independence Party 10|
| Green 43|
The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

Michael Foster MP
I am well aware the title above is not right. As I write this Mr Foster's website is still proclaiming him as MP for Worcester. I tried to e-mail him but got this backThis is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.
Delivery to the following recipients failed.
Can anyone spot the mistake?
So I've mailed the Conservative and Lib Dem candidates asking for election material, and mentioned that may wish to contact Mr Foster. Once Mr Foster has an e-mail address I can get through on I will send a similar request to him. Oh I also mentioned that Mrs Harpers blog
could be better used.
UPDATE: 21:44 from Mr Fosters own e-mail account (which I will keep to myself)Thank you Dave - the site administrator is posting the appropriate
message, which applied as from 5.30pm today.
Why not leg of the woods?
A friend enquired t'other day why we say neck of the woods, and not leg, or head or *censored* of the woods.
Clickety click Mr P and all will be revealed.

Can Brum legal bid halt May election?
The deputy leader of Birmingham City Council has started a legal process that could force Tony Blair to postpone the General Election until adequate safeguards are in place to prevent postal vote fraud.
John Hemming wants the High Court to allow a judicial review into the Prime Minister's decision to go to the country on May 5.
Coun Hemming, who is the prospective Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Birmingham Yardley, said he was taking the unprecedented step of attempting to block the election because of the "very real likelihood" that scores of inner city constituencies across the UK would be riddled by ballot rigging.

. My local MP Michael Foster
is yet to respond, as is Tom Watson, or Boris Johnson. Richard Allan (who is stepping down) has replied
Staying with Mr Foster
, his stalking horse is Margaret Harper
and she claims a blog
, a bit sketchy for now, but I look forward to enjoying her blogging, which she seems to really enjoy *cough*
Finally we have Mary Dhanou
for the LibDems, who has no blog, but a winning smile.
Just up the road, the Wyre Forest constiuency has an independent MP in the form of Dr. Richard Taylor who came to power as the only independent in the last parliament representing the Health Concern
party. The LibDems have announced that they will stand not against the incumbent, which could play quite well into the hands of the local liberal
party, who have a strong PPC in Fran Oborski
whose website is a blog and always has been.
