30th June 2009 - My First Full Day of Campaigning in Norwich North


1145: Visited the NHS walk-in health centre at Dussindale, along with Green Party Leader Caroline Lucas and Deputy Leader Adrian Ramsay. More than five and a half thousand patients and medical staff have petitioned against plans by the Primary Care Trust for Norfolk to close this popular centre.

The Head of the PCT and the rest of the management team turned out to give us the red carpet treatment, and the Eastern Daily Press were there to conduct my first interview of the Norwich North campaign.

1225: Filmed canvassing in Primrose Crescent with Caroline Lucas and GP activists by Anglia TV, then interviewed with Caroline by Carol Walker from the World at One!

1315: Lunch with Caroline Lucas and Patrick Barkham (of the Guardian) down by the river.

1415: Joined Adrian Ramsey and local Green canvassers in Mile Cross ward, a traditionally Labour stronghold seized by the Green Party in the June 4th county council elections...a move from fourth to first place in the space of a year!. This sets an encouraging precedent since the Green Party came fourth in Norwich North at the last General Election...

Interviewed while there by Patrick Barkham and photographed by the Guardian photographer.

1600: Interviewed by Sam Coates of The Times...it's great that the Greens are finally being treated as genuine contenders for victory in Norwich North!

1800: Photos for the North Norwich freepost.

1900: Joined Adrian Ramsey to give a background briefing to BBC Online at the Norwich Forum.
And at 

1810: Another interview, this time with BBC Look East!

2230: Newsnight! I think(!) I came across well while others frankly didn't. Crick ended the piece by suggesting we could beat LibDems & Labour!
