On the Election Trail

Submitted on Wed, 04/05/2011 - 4:29pm

This is glorious campaigning weather, and we are all getting tanned and losing weight.

My worst gaffe so far was after an animated discussion about the Town Centre, the voter said "Nice to meet you, Jim" and I said: "Me too, what is your name?" He replied "Umvic" so I responded: "Nice to meet you too, Umvic," and as I walked away I realised that he had said "I'm Vic" so he must have thought I was a complete idiot.

No dog bites so far this time, in fact a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Only seen two Councillors out on the streets, and one kindly returned my rosette that fell off.

So many people agree with me that party politics should have no place at local level; this election should not be a referendum on the Coalition. It is going to take time to change, but the tide is going our way. The real argument by the Parties for party politics at local level is that without these they would have no workers to fight General Elections. In some other parts of the country the Independent supporters all go off at General or European or even County elections to work for their party, but at District, Town and Parish they support Independents. Let us see how the voters think on Thursday.
