Come on, you're being unfair, Folkestone is only 90 miles away, you could drive there in just under 2 hours! :lol:

Re: Is anything happening?

Given the open goal that is presented to them, there's very little sign of any of the other parties pressing the flesh. The opposition parties still have to target their resources sensibly. For instance Labour, I imagine, is concentrating in Sele and the LibDems will be concentrating on retaining t...
