Today I showed David Willets, the Shadow Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills, around Clifton Village. We knocked on a few doors and spoke to a few residents. Many were very supportive. Some asked David directly about MPs expenses and he answered their questions openly and with honesty. A message that did come out clear though was the way in which David Cameron has impressed people with his quick and tough action over the expense scandal.
It was great to get some much support from people in Clifton and I am sure we’d have knocked on more doors if it were not for the heavy rain. The next MP to visit Clifton will be Greg Clark with his postponed visit from yesterday.
