The wit of Stephen Pound
An extract from the Pendennis column in The Observer:
"If only every Labour MP had the wit of Stephen Pound, a third landslide would be in the bag. On the return flight of Virgin Atlantic's inaugural trip to Mumbai, the affable Pound quaffed rather a lot of champagne and fell into conversation with a hack who was also enjoying Sir Richard Branson's lavish hospitality. 'So, Stephen, how long have you been an MP?' the great man was asked. Turning to the very attractive Virgin Tour Operator on board, Steve gave a wink and replied: 'About five foot seven and a half.'"

Now the election date has been confirmed, I'll be updating this site more regularly. I'll scan and post any relevant campaign material that I can, and keep an eye on all the local papers.
Also, this site is now ranked number 2 in google for the terms Steve Pound in Google, behind Steve's official site. Which is nice.
With the election date confirmed as 5th May, all of the Ealing-based candidates have been out campaigning. Steve Pound "went on a whistle-stop tour of as many of the borough’s Tube stations on Tuesday evening to rally support", according to the Ealing Times.
Steve Pound on Michael Howard and abortion
Speaking on GMTV, Steve Pound has the following to say on Michael Howard's stance on abortion:
"This is the George Bush agenda. Michael Howard has seen there’s a hard-right fundamentalist, anti-abortionist, tax-cutting agenda that’s worked in America"
