A general election candidate has embarked on a political pub crawl in an attempt to brew up support.
It has become almost de rigueur for politicians to pose with a pint these days. UKIP's Nigel Farage is rarely seen without one, and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg was recently interviewed on the BBC over a couple of pints and a bag of crisps.
But, to misquote Heineken's famous slogan, Labour's Nick Grant hopes to reach the voters other parties cannot by inviting them to join him at their local.
He plans to visit another two boozers before ending his tour at The Eel Pie in Twickenham on May 5 - two days before voters hit the polls.
Mr Grant hopes the pubs will be a more relaxed setting than the traditional venues for political surgeries like libraries and community centres.
"I think it's important people get the chance to meet their local candidates ahead of the election," he said. "An informal chat in a friendly local pub is a great way for people to ask questions and talk about what matters to them.
"I'm looking forward to having some interesting discussions, and meeting a lot of my fellow Twickenham residents over the next few weeks."
Mr Grant's full schedule is:
- The Waldegrave Arms, Teddington – Monday April 20
- The Railway Bell, Hampton – Monday April 27
- The Eel Pie, Twickenham – Tuesday May 5
