In the news today is the story that the Conservative Party are preparing for an Autumn election - should the PM decide to call one. I for one say "Bring it on Gordon".
OK Gordon has had a boost in the polls but I don't believe that he will do as well as he thinks.
From first hand experiences of recent parliamentary selections, I know that the Conservative Party is well armed with an troop of outstanding candidates in many, many constituencies. Candidates who bring wide ranges of different experiences to offer their country, often with strong local roots and, vitally, candidates who are prepared to roll up their sleeves to help others.
Pictured here are Maggie Throup candidate for Solihull and Mary MacLoed candidate for Brentford and Isleworth, giving up their Saturday to come and help me work on the preschool for orphans in Rwanda. Both are constituencies I know well and both candidates will make outstanding MPs for the people they seek to represent. They are not alone. So go on Gordon, give us the chance to paint our own country just a bit bluer.
P.S I've realised that I haven't posted many pictures of the Rwanda trip and everyone in the street asks how it went. So here are just some of the many that show some of the children we helped and some of what we all did.... Thank you for your support.
