    The campaign to be Hinckley and Bosworth's MP looks too close to call between Michael Mullaney and David Tredinnick.

    Speaking at the close of the campaign Michael Mullaney said "Thanks for the really positive response to my campaigns to get A and E Services into Hinckley and my campaign to give local people more control over planning decisions.

    All the indications are that the election tomorrow will be too close to call between David Tredinnick and myself.

    As the Leicester Mercury put it "David Tredinnick may be pushed close by the Liberal Democrats in Bosworth".

    For 28 years we have had the same representation at Westminster. A review of David Tredinnick's career is set out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Tredinnick_%28politician%29 If you believe we have the best possible representation then vote David Tredinnick Conservative on May 7th.

    If you believe however that we can do better then vote for change. At the last election I came a close 2nd to Mr Tredinnick. So we can have a change here this time.

    We need a change so that we can have a representative who lives locally, who will campaign on the serious issues locally, and a representative who cares for people and what happens to them

    Tomorrow that change can happen, with your support. It's going to be close between David Tredinnick and myself and every vote will count. Please also support my excellent team of colleagues whoa re standing for the local Council.

    If you can help my campaign in the last 36 hours please get in touch on 07576 289910 .
    All the best
