Jim Thornton's Election Blog - Market Stalls and Savaging Part One

I lost one vote at our Saturday Market Stall when asked what I thought of Stansted expansion. I said I would like to see a well-researched debate on the merits of the Thames Estuary, but this was the wrong answer, as the questionner was all gung-ho to make Stansted another Schiphol.   Out delivering later, I was savaged by a pensioner on the issue of MP's Expenses, and had to try and stop him hyper-ventilating; this issue really has caused a great deal of anger, but we agreed we had to try and find some new ways of doing politics.
