Cameron in Swindon 

Conservative leader chooses Coate pub garden to launch 'grey manifesto'
 
Swindon Election 2010
Conservative leader David Cameron stopped off in Swindon today to give a speech in front of two hundred party faithful at the Sun Inn near Coate Water.
 
The event chosen by Cameron to launch the Conservative 'grey manifesto', where pensioners would be encouraged to take part in his vision of 'Big Society' community involvement.

“I want to bring older generations right into the mainstream of our national life," Cameron said.

“Yes, to treat them with respect and kindness. Yes, to give them the dignity and security they deserve. But also to call on their wisdom and values.” 
 
“Older people can be the army of the Big Society to bring new life to our communities,” he added before leaving to celebrate his wife's 39th birthday.
 
The group listening thankfully giving the Witney MP a slightly more friendly send-off that on one of his last trips! - see 'Cab Saves Cameron' link below.
 
More political heavyweights are expected in town in the coming weeks before the big day on 06 May, with both Swindon North and South constituencies seen as 'must win' seats for Conservative and Labour.
