Bit of a contrast to our man Tom's 'survival pack'. He's getting by on coffee and Mars bar (but don't put that on expenses, Tom).

No more Tory voting for me, particularly after Theresa May yesterday. I am for UKIP. Sorry Robin, you have both Cameron and May to blame for this one and the General still to come.

Why is this "news" feed showing Walker's cheerleading (5:27 pm) for the Tories ?
Probably John Philpott manning the desk.

So, just how many election leaflets do you think you've received in the run up to this election?

Dozens? Hundreds? None?

Evesham Journal:

3:34pm

Worcester MP Robin Walker is urging everyone to vote...

"Every vote will count and in some areas it will be a close race to the finish, so I urge everyone in Worcester to make their vote count."

Nortynorse says...

Can't believe there are people in this city STUPID ENOUGH to vote for the f**king Greens. They have no mandate and are a lost vote to those who really want to make a difference.
He lives in Tunnel Hill (a real green area NOT), and represents St Stephens along with that other idiot JONES, who complained about not having enough Dog Bins in a Cul de Sac.

Just about sums up Worcester City Politics.
