Election Day

I have spent the first two-and-a-half hours this morning, freezing my extremities off, sitting on a polling station in the next Ward to mine where we are fighting a by-election to try to win a Tory controlled seat. The previous Tory incumbent vacated his seat on the Council when he got a job working for the FBI (!). Polling was very, very quiet, only just over 20 voters in two hours. I hope it picks up, just to show the BNP candidate what people think of the crap they have been putting out. Best of luck to our candidate anway, Trevor's a decent bloke who has worked tremendously hard during this campaign, and the one that he narrowly lost in June.
