An interesting evening talking to Tonbridge & Malling Conservatives at King's Hill. I was a last minute replacement for Greg Clark, who is on a trip to Bangladesh, but seeing as I only live twenty minutes away, it was an easy gig. Very annoying though, that I had to turn down Newsnight, who phoned this afternoon wanting me to go on tonight.
I must admit I don't think I was on fire tonight. The King's Hill Community Centre is not exactly an easy venue to get a good audience rapport going, so I wasn't able to spark off the audience in the way I am used to. The Q&A was interesting - not a single question on Europe, which is increasingly the case, I find nowadays. There was a question on South West Norfolk, interestingly enough. Anyway, I hope I proved an adequate substitute for Greg Clark, even if half of the audience hadn't got a clue who I was!
