Knowing me, VoteRedGoGreen, knowing you, Norwich North…

July 19, 2009

I have just returned from the Norwich North by-election.

Not a great deal to report, although we didn’t see an awful lot of Tories, Liberals or Greens out. Lots of Labour people, and a really good vibe about the campaign (although, in fairness, there always is on a by-election – even Crewe and Nantwich had a certain something in the air).

Norwich is a lovely city, though, and does not deserve its reputation as described in the “Perception” section of Norwich’s Wikipedia page:

Norwich is sometimes portrayed in the UK media as a place which is remote, unsophisticated, gauche, and out-of-step with national trends (see Alan Partridge).

Now that’s just rude.
