Snowed in - but the campaign goes on

James Telfer showing how real men do not mind the snow!
The snow put paid to many of my canvassing plans for the weekend - as supporters were either snowed in [again] or understandably a little reluctant to take the fight to Gordon Brown as the flakes lashed down.

We had to put off the planned trip to Stockton South [apologies James - we will return I promise!] but ended up trying to canvass over the weekend locally in Whitonstall, south Tynedale and Prudhoe. Ended up looking like the abominable snowmen but got much credit for our effort from those we met - several Labour supporters admired our pluck if nothing else!
