The Fight To The Finish To Protect Democracy; George Laird Speech at The Brexit Party Campaign in Ayr 2019, the people of Ayr gave the Brexit Party a great reception and support for our efforts, make a different politics on the 23 May, vote for The Brexit Party, to Change Politics For Good
Firstly, I am sorry about the blogging situation of the last few days, campaigning and illness has burned up a lot of my time. Although the campaigning is going well, on the illness front, it has wrecked me.
In order to make up for it, and to give you my readers a laugh, I have a video for you to watch, most people don't get to see in action as a campaigner, so get the popcorn ready and settled back. The campaign team I am with has been touring around the West of Scotland, the video is us out and about in sunny Ayr.
The reception we received was pretty good, and we found plenty of support to elect pro Brexit MEPs.
In order to do this campaign, I had to cancel my Labour Party membership to finish what I started in 2016 to get us out of the EU.
But there are somethings which take priority over party politics.
I am a lead campaigner for The Brexit Party at the moment and according to polling the party is expected to do well on the 23rd. I am campaigning to trying and get two MEPs from the Brexit Party in Scotland elected in a rather crowded political Scottish landscape, but it is possible.
The speech I done was totally off the cuff, as the organiser just handed me the mic and asked me to say I few words to the voters.
Anyway, due to illness, I am have taken yesterday and today off campaigning, the virus I picked left me sweating and overheating so much you would think I had been in a sauna. I have some hard campaigning days left in order to try to get two MEP seats secured, then a spot of lying down, perhaps on the floor is in order.
Finally, I enjoy campaigning, and in this campaign, I got a real kick out of people coming to the Brexit Party stalls to ask for me by name, which I assume must mean I am doing something right.
The fight to finish ends at 10 pm on 23rd May, so keep an eye out, you may see me milling about at the Glasgow Count.
