The Lembit effect

More from the blog that reads the Shropshire Star so you don't have to...

You will be pleased to learn that:
Award-winning caravan sales company Salop Leisure reported a 70 per cent increase in sales on last year at its annual Spring Holiday Home Show in Shrewsbury. 
Visitor numbers also rose by 20 per cent compared to 2006, as the show - held at the company’s multi-million-pound sales centre alongside Shrewsbury bypass at Emstrey Island - attracted customers from Scotland to London.
But why is this so interesting?

The answer, as we reported here earlier, is that:
The show was opened by Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Lembit Opik and his girlfriend Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia who revealed plans to spend a holiday in either a motorhome or caravan this summer.
So well done to both of them.

And they seem to have enjoyed the show:
“I had not thought about the idea of a holiday in a caravan or a motorhome before, but now I have seen both I really want to,” said Gabriela.

“It’s amazing how luxurious they are inside.”

Montgomeryshire MP Mr Opik described the show as “an exceptional one-stop shop for caravanning”.
If Lembit can really say "exceptional one-stop shop" my admiration for him has grown even greater.
