The True Firepower of Norwich South

Today we started a big new survey campaign across the constituency asking people what local issues Norwich City Council should be tackling - we're following up the issues from last year, like parks, recycling, tax and roads. We're also collecting views on the Unitary issue.

We had 10 people (ten!) out delivering across the constituency - that is the biggest force on the ground since the general election. Teams went out in the South Park estate, Bluebell Road, Eaton village and in different areas in Town Close. We're doing the same tomorrow so I hope we get as many volunteers. It's not only great to get so much done but you get a better feeling of being part of a team.

We've already had some filled out responses through my letter box at home. So fingers crossed this is a big survey!

Listening to people is easy and the issues.

The difficulty is the solutions that delivers results, that are sustainably costed and resourced.

Advice: Go with answers.

Antony, you are going to have to come up with something novel and good on ASB, Jobs and Housing to get ahead of Charles Clarke. Period.

That's a great idea and good luck, glad to hear you have a strong team behind you.

I wouldn't disagree with any of those. But as people on the doorstep always tell me they NEVER see Mr Clarke, I wonder what his secret is?
