Cullingworth nestles in Yorkshire's wonderful South Pennines and I have the pleasure and delight to be the village's Conservative Councillor. But these are my views - on politics, food, beer and the stupidity of those who want to tell me what to think or do. And a little on mushrooms.

Campaign diary: Let it roll!
The final part of the 2011 campaign is on - we have the "get out the vote leaflet" printed (after a little crisis that was solved by the wonderful Harry) and on its way to the voter, urging them to cast their precious, first-past-the-post ballot for me. A nice leaflet unsullied by national politics, by referendums or any extraneous superfluities - just a reminder of who they're voting for, what I've done over sixteen years plus a little gentle but justified criticism of Bradford's spiteful Labour leadership.
All that remains is 'knocking up' or is it 'pulling out' - not keen on this American 'GOTV' tag especially when we've perfectly good, innuendo-laden English versions!
