It's eve of poll

Polling Day in Henley is tomorrow and the Lib Dem HQ in Thame has been busier than ever. There have been numerous parliamentarians and hundreds of helpers. Our eve of poll newspaper was out by lunchtime and this afternoon everybody has been doing some last minute canvassing.

Back at the start of the day, we had a visit from former Party Leader Paddy Ashdown. Paddy and Stephen Kearney went to the livestock market in the centre of Thame to speak to farmers about the issues concerning them at the moment. Wednesday is sheep day at the market and, despite the recent rise in prices, there are still many worries for farmers including proposals from Brussels to increase paperwork for sheep farmers and livestock markets.

While he was in the HQ, Paddy also helped Stephen to cut a cake baked by a local party member.

This afternoon, Nick Clegg came for his eighth visit of the campaign and went canvassing on Chinnor Road before giving a rallying speech to workers.
