Campaigning in Newport West

Went out canvassing for the first time this morning, in Malpas. Interesting to see how many conservatives there are out there - and many "anyone but Gordon Brown" voters. Malpas doesn't strike me as a particularly friendly area for us, but it seemed to be - apparently one of the more marginal bits (well, compared to Bettws and Pill, maybe it is).

Another interesting thing is that I didn't personally find a single Lib Dem voter, and of all of us, there weren't many there. So this resurgence is nonsense to me.

It's target seat #117, so needs to be won for a Conservative majority in Parliament. Flynn seems to be treating it as something of his safe seat from what I've seen; let's hope not.
