Parliament's back in action next week, and I've used the break to get around the electorate as much as I can. This week, I've held four coffee meetings, my campaign launch, and last night pub politics at the new Thirsty Acres in Kirwee. I've also been around knocking on doors and delivering hundreds of fliers. With only 80 days until voting opens, it's certainly getting busy!
