Hitting the political trail

A tiring day I guess. I was up early to take my son to the Brunswick campus to attend a public (sort of) meeting where David Blunkett spoke and answered questions. I explained the British constitution to T on the way and told him that we were going to see a former Home Secretary. It was hard going explaining what MPs are and constituencies are and cabinets and ministers. We didn’t even start on the House of bleedin’ Lords. Blunkett spoke well but without a good deal of passion. His guide dog was beautiful. I wonder if we’ll be in tomorrow’s Citizen as there were lots of press photographers present.
