Vince Cable took time out of his busy national schedule to visit Spelthorne and to canvass on behalf on Mark Chapman. An enthusiastic group of canvassers got a very positive response from local people and confirmed that more and more people are switching to the Liberal Democrats at this election.
Mark Chapman said "Local people were very surprised to find him on their doorstep, and we got a fantastic response. Vince was impressed with the momentum we have built up here, and he recognised that we have excellent prospects at this election in Spelthorne".
Vince Cable said "Having been let down so badly by their former Conservative MP, the residents of Spelthorne deserve a change for the better. I thoroughly recommend Mark Chapman as the best person to represent Spelthorne in the next Parliament."
