The decision by Gordon Brown to go to Buckingham Palace this morning has been long predicted and awaited. Our priority today is to get around all three towns and make a start on the formal election campaign.
We started this morning in Hayle with a strong turnout from our Hayle branch and delivered leaflets across much of the town. The weather was dry if a bit breezy and we were getting a very good reaction from the people we met.
On the way back, the weather started to break up. As we headed back to the car ready for lunch, I passed a man with a young daughter who must have been about 4. "Look!" she said to her father, pointing at us in our blue rosettes "They have won something." Not yet...off to Redruth this afternoon and Camborne later on.
