What a grotty day to play football…
I remember how much I hated playing in the wind and rain whilst watching the girls today. Rain is ok but wind and rain together is most definitely not. Anyway despite the horrific conditions the girls managed to win 3-2 against a spirited Rainham Kenilworth thanks to the last minute poaching instinct of our right winger.
Along with all the parents I was soaked at the full time whistle and my hair looked like I had been dragged through a hedge backwards. Not quite sure how but I have ended up with drafting the match report and washing the rather stinky training bibs – my house is looking fetching with 12 little luminous yellow bibs hanging over every possible radiator!! I bet Harry Rednapp and Joe Jordan don’t have to do this…

Armed Forces Day
Canvassing the Tree Estate
No lunch today as everyone appears to rather belatedly have started their New Year’s diet…mind you given how desperately sad everyone looked as they departed for their homes hungry and thirsty, I am pretty sure we’ll be back in the local pubs next week!!

Cameron Direct is an opportunity for non-Conservative voters to ask David Cameron any question they like on any issue they want. This evening David was asked 21 questions which varied from Afghanistan through to knife crime. The audience was made up of mixed age groups and several first time voters, including members of the Medway Youth Parliament and sixth formers from local secondary schools. I felt that the audience reaction after the meeting was extremely positive with many people coming up to me afterwards clearly enthused by what they heard. Let’s hope they liked the evening enough to come out and vote Conservative at the General Election…whenever that might be.

Freezing in Larkfield
Despite wearing 5 layers (vest, shirt, jumper, suit jacket, overcoat), scarf, gloves and furry lined boots I and the team were forced to retire after two hours, just before frost bite set in, and headed off to a warm pub for lunch. Two cups of coffee and a ham, egg and chips later I finally began to feel the ends of my fingers but the morning spent in the cold was definitely worth it.

Cameron Direct comes to Chatham & Aylesford
David Cameron is doing his first Cameron Direct in Kent here in Chatham & Aylesford next Monday. Cameron Direct has proved to be a really popular event whereby he comes face to face with so far undecided voters and the feedback has been amazing. I am of course delighted David Cameron is coming to the constituency not least because it is a fantastic opportunity for anyone of any political persuasion to come along and raise their issues, questions and concerns with him. Members of the public set the agenda for the evening so whether the question, issue or concern is about the global economic downturn or local anti-social behaviour, it will be answered by David Cameron in person.
For local readers of this blog, tickets for the event are free but have to be obtained in advance by emailing [email protected]

Especially for Iain Dale!
Coincidentally Simon and I are friends and fellow Spurs fans and went to the game last night (shockingly my first home game of the season) and watched Spurs win 3-1 to proceed into the next round of the FA Cup. So the following picture is dedicated to Iain’s twitterings…
