David with Brook Newmark MP and Deborah Dunleavy
Last night Susan and I attended the Bolton North East Conservatives’ Supper Club that is run ny my colleague Deborah Dunleavy the Prospective M.P. for that Constituency.
The dinner was held at The Last Drop and the guest speaker was Brooks Newmark the Member of Parliament for Braintree in Essex. Brooks is currently one of the Opposition Whips team. Before entering Parliament he worked on Wall Street for a period and was then involved in private equity businesses. He has tremendous knowledge of how the City and finance operates. In his speech he spoke of how much Government debt is ‘off balance sheet’ in other words it exists but Gordon Brown doesn’t count it.

On Saturday the Bury North campaign received some extra help from GMCF – Greater Manchester Conservative Future – Fortunately the weather although cold was fine and dry and we all had a productive day.
In the evening we attended a fundraising event organised by BNECA -Bolton North East Conservative Assocation – held at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton. The main entertainment after the usual auction and raffle was Take That 2 who are apparently the UK’s leading Take That tribute band. As I have never seen Take That live I could not compare directly but their performance was very professional indeed and it was an excellent evening.
