Anyone But Branley Again

Apologies for the light postings over the past few days, but things are not going to improve much over the next few days either. I’m about to go into the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle on Wednesday for what I hope will be the final angioplasty procedure to keep my heart in a healthier condition. There are a few preparations to make then I will probably take a few days off away from the blog.

Today I’ll be joining with some old friends, and have volunteered to do a bit door knocking and leafleting in the Westoe ward of South Shields helping to try and elect the Conservative candidate, Tony Dailly in the “Anyone But Branley Again” by election. It is over twenty five years since I last involved myself in any such activity for any political party, but I am appalled that a man who has been removed twice from South Tyneside Borough Council for non attendance should have the brass neck to try and get back in at the first opportunity. My natural instinct these days is to support the Conservatives who are here to offer change to the country and also to local people here in South Shields.

The South Shields Conservatives, as far as I am aware, have no millionaire supporters, no big land owners, and no big businesses behind them, they are just local Geordies like you and I who would like to see real value for money services delivered with care and with an eye for prudent financial management. Tony Dailly is the local Association Chairman who lives adjacent to the Woods Terrace cricket and rugby ground and he is as local as you could want, the ideal candidate for this by election.
