Launch of the WWF report on the Rivers Beane and Mimram

April 29, 2010

Today I went to the launch of a report the WWF have produced into the River Beane and the River Mimram. The precious chalk rivers of England are in a very poor ecological state, often running completely dry in the summer, so the World Wide Fund for Nature’s backing is very good news indeed. This is an excellent report and I hope it will be a powerful tool in the mission to save these “rivers on the edge”.

Taking the campaign to Buntingford, Barkway, Barley and Reed

April 27, 2010

Yesterday we were meeting voters in Buntingford, Barkway, Barley and Reed and the main subject raised was immigration and the need for a more efficient and effective system. Our Conservative policy of having a limit each year for non-EU immigration and a Border Police Force to enforce the rules is popular.

In Reed, a voter’s dog so liked us that he jumped in our campaign vehicle and refused to leave. Here is a photo:
