Saturday's seem to get busier and busier. I had the great pleasure in attending the King Street Festival today - the usual excellent mix of music and street stalls. I had a fascinating chat with a group of Senior Citizens, all of whom were switching from Labour to Conservative because of our pledge to link pensions to earnings again, not inflation. After we managed to stay rain free for the morning, I was dragged away from the direction of Carrow Road, but instead had the delight of canvassing door-to-door in Bowthorpe. A warm reception from Cloverhill, and most of the talk is still of the bus lane. What was rather odd is that another team is telephone canvassing at the moment - and one poor confused lady had to deal with a Tory on the phone and a Tory at her door simultaneously. Not easy, but as a Conservative voter, she just about managed it!
