Pluses and minuses.


Here’s my analysis of tonight’s canvassing session:

  • Poor turnout. It was just me and one comrade so we didn’t get much done.
  • We were canvassing next to a busy road and could hardly hear anything.
  • Not many people were in.
  • Not many people identified as enthusiastic Labour.


  • It wasn’t raining.
  • No one identified as enthusiastic Lib Dems or Tories.
  • My fellow canvasser told an Italian lady that since she was a citizen of the EU she was entitled to vote in the local election. Upon being asked which party she usually voted for in Italy, she replied: “Anyone on the far-left”. She then said that she would be happy to vote Labour in May. Woop! We’re securing la vota communista!
  • Equally amusingly, the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate walked past and clearly wasn’t happy to see us. Woop woop!
