But we also need to take the message onto the streets in Milton Keynes

Although its true that Labour now seem to be enjoying a consistent Poll lead (the latest today shows 10%) the real test for the Coalition will not be on the 26th March but on the 5th May at local elections up and down the country including here in Milton Keynes. Of the 17 seats up for election this year only 3 are being defended by Labour. We are working as hard as we can to gain several others, but we do need your help and support, and as much as anything that is about talking to voters on the telephone or on the doorstep. You can really make a difference. We know many of you have never 'canvassed' before and it may seem a daunting task. It really isnt and we nearly always go out in a team. Its about making face to face contact and listening more than anything else. That in turn builds trust and support. So even if you have never done it before give it a try. You will be surprised how easy it is.
