As canvassing comes to a close…
I would like to thank all of those people who have been so polite and considerate to our canvass team, whether or not you intended to support Labour next Thursday. I would also like to apologise to those few people who were so rude and abusive to the canvassers (does supporting UKIP make you rude, or do UKIP just attract people who are naturally angry?) for disturbing whatever it was you were doing.
My favourite quote of this year's campaign goes to the chap who said, when I was complaining about all the ankle-height, really stiff letter boxes… “I'll tell you what, you don't complain about my letter box, and I won't complain about the sh***e you push through it!”
