As Mrs FJH says I never take her out, I surprised her by taking her to hear SDLP Leader, Colum Eastwood and Senator Mairia Cahill at a SDLP Upper Bann meeting tonight.
SDLP Conference is on Saturday. The Party is very much in election mode. This is one of a series of meetings that have been taking place in the North. It is actually about more than touching base with Party members…it is as much about touching base with core support.
Being visible is important. Westminster-based …Seamus Mallon, Mark Durkan, Margaret Ritchie and Alasdair McDonnell were not really able to do this. Colum has been visiting towns, doing walkabouts, talking to traders and talking to Sixth Formers at local schools. Today…Lurgan, Portadown and St Ronans School.
