With a week to go and the reception is still terrific. There is a long way to go but I remain optimistic and hopeful.

While everyone has issues that are personal to them, jobs and the economy still remain the big issues.

When you hear the despair in the voice of parents because their kids have emigrated, you would have to be made of stone not to be moved.

You have to use that to motivate you. You want to do better for people and you want to make sure that we are never let down as a country again.

Change is needed like never before and I can feel that in the people when I canvass. Many are disillusioned at firs but most are willing to give you a fair hearing.

Europe is coming up quite a good bit and there is a sense from people that Europe has screwed us over.

It is true that Europe is punishing us but I try to remain positive about Europe and say we are being punished primarily because we had a weak and useless Government who let the bankers get away with anything.

Roll on February 25th.
