Campaigning in Harpenden
Yours truly, wearing the blue t-shirt, campaigning in Harpenden
Today I was in Harpenden campaigning with a lovely team of volunteers from Stronger In. The weather was a bit dismal, but we had plenty of people telling us they would be voting for Britain to stay in the EU.
I was surprised to find that the volunteers in Harpenden were not active with any political party. All the Stronger In campaigners I have met so far have been seasoned activists with political parties, mostly Labour and Liberal Democrat. I think one advantage that the Remain campaign has is that it can draw upon an army of seasoned canvassers from the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties.
