Campaigning in Camberwell with Val, Lib Dem Hypocricy (again!!) and Hibs lose to Celtic!


We had a really excellent campaigning session in Camberwell Green on Saturday with Val Shawcross on a beautifully sunny day!
Again we had a really good response on the doorstep with 60% of out contacts supporting Labour, this in an area which is not by any means our strongest. This follows on from extra sessions in the week that we are now running which are again giving us a very good, almost surprisingly good, response!
Eight of us were out and covered a lot of ground in the 2 hours and still managed to get back for most of the football!

Lib Dem Executive member was caught out by us and the SLP this week by lobbying for a new children's Centre in Lambeth (her hopeful new constituency!) less than a week after voting to close the Livesey Childrens Museum in Southwark!!
Crass cynical hypocricy from the Lib Dems should come as no suprise to anyone and there is really no point highlighting to the Lib Dems as they just dont care!! they are quite unbelievable at times and a quite disgraceful excuse for a political party!
Even on a national scale they are in a complete shambles over a Referendum on the new Treaty to such an extent that they will be abstaining on the vote today!! What a joke both nationally and locally!!
Hibs winning run came to an end against Celtic on Saturday but watched miost of the match on Setanta after campaigning and thought that they played well and just ran out of steam a bit at the end. they look comfortable at the moment and stronmger at the back so I still think the 3rd spot is ours for the taking!
Arsenal has a really excellent win at the san Siro last night and the possiblility of 3 English teams in the last 8 of the Champions League a real possibility. I fancy a Man U v Arsenal Final in Russia!
