Don't count your chickens

With the exception of the BNP, all the parties contesting the general election in Telford & Wrekin, have been out putting up their posters.

But it seems that Mark thinks he has the election in the bag because whilst his counterpart in the Telford constituency, Tom Biggins, has literally plastered his constituency with posters, the only evidence of Mark Pritchard's campaign is a handful of posters around the Leegomery and Wellington area.  And they're old posters at that, using the old Tory torch logo.

I think Marky boy is counting his chickens before they've hatched.

Mark goes to college...

A source wrote on a local website recently with the following information;

Fact 1: TCAT (Telford College of Arts & Tech, Wellington) is opening a new unit on Friday devoted to health care.

Fact 2: Mark Pritchard and David Wright have been invited to be among the "honoured" guests.

Fact 3: Mark's PA phones TCAT and asks if the Shropshire Star is going to be there.

A couple of days later, our source writes;

Sure enough Mark was at TCAT today, glad-handing all the staff who were there, announcing who he was and saying he had worked hard since he was elected five years ago to ensure sufficient funding for the college.

As one member of staff told me, "We've hardly ever seen him until the last few days!"

Keep up the good electioneering work Mark.

Labour targeting the Wrekin

It looks like Marky boy is going to have a fight on his hands come May 6th.

According to the BBC, Labour is going to be targeting the Wrekin constituency with a view to winning it back.  As well as Labour ploughing resources into their campaign in the Wrekin, there is a UKIP candidate splitting the conservative (small "c") vote and who knows what fate will befall the Lib Dems who have thus far been a largely irrelevant political force in the borough?

We live in interesting times.
