I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

South Shields Youngest Conservative Voter

We did another Conservative stall on King Street this morning. I'm a strong believer that we need to get our message across to as many people as possible and meeting people on the High Street on a Saturday morning makes up a fundamental part of this.

The Green Party seemed to temporarily share this philosophy. They turned up and set up their stall right next to me for 45 minutes. Conservatives are obviously a little more robust as we managed 4.5 hours on King Street in the cold!

Our new balloons seemed a firm favourite with the youngsters too!
