If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll have seen that I was in Bedford today helping out Dave Hodgson’s campaign for Mayor. Unlike my last by-election day out in Norwich, it was a sunny day so it was a pleasure to be out delivering on the streets of the town.

(And yes, I don’t agree with the current Mayoral system, but I also can’t argue with the reality that Bedford has one, and it’s better to have a Liberal Democrat in the post)

So, if you’ve got some spare time in the next week, then why not pop along to Bedford and help out the Dave for Mayor campaign? Every little helps, especially if you can get there on polling day next Thursday where they’ll need lots of help to get out the vote from across the borough. I can’t promise that you’ll get good weather too, but they do make a nice cup of tea at campaign HQ.
