he dropped off a letter/poster asking us to vote for 'A Man of Vision and Integrity'...

 

Now that would really narrow the choices!

 

There are limits to self-promotion as voters will soon turn off you if you put yourself at the top of a pedestal.

We got a visit off Steve Rodan, I didn't realise anyone was standing against him this year until he told me.

Got a 'sorry you were out' from Geoff Corkish. I got home at 6 so I wonder what time he went round?

All I'm getting is letters from God - is the church standing in the elections?

 

Divine intervention?

"Canvassing time" - it's a special concept invented by our MHKs so they can pretend to care about you.

 

A "sorry you were out" card says "I love you!"

 

It's like Christmas, or birthdays, except that its quinquennial rather than annual.

It's a relief to most of them when you are out as they aren't held up by your trifling problems.

However - The candidate that did knock (no time for me to talk to them - I was just on my way out)

had no e-mail contact available, the telephone number for contacting him had no answer phone (his wife took a message, if she was in) and no manifesto available.

 

 

Half hearted springs to mind.

 

Lets see if Mrs K can do any better.

Mr Karran paid a visit last week, rang the door bell and had a bit of a chat, only one so far. Had a few bits of paper through the letter box, which all seem to say the same thing.

 

Hopefully they will have one of those church hall meetings where all the canidates can come along. Went to the Onchan one last election and poor old Geoff Cannell kept shooting himself in the foot by saying all the time that 'it wasn't my fault' when asked about something. Didn't go down with the crowd.

reckon I'll be out doing some door-to-door 'supporting' a South Douglas candidate this next week...

 

Phil Kermode roped you in has he?

Mr Anderson caught us in last week. Was so taken by surprise that didn't ask him anything much. Seemed a pleasant chap. I've decided to try and not get worked up by all this because at the end of the day they do what they want and really they're only calling to ask you to make sure they keep their job/salary/pension. Have missed Mr Boot several times but he does seem to be putting the time in so hopefully will meet him before the "day".

That's their campaign doomed then. Who'd vote for someone who sent a gibbering idiot out on this behalf?

Not me.

 

But I would definitely vote for someone who sent a dwarf out on his behalf. Or a couple of kids pretending to be an adult, one standing on the other's shoulders, with a big trenchcoat, and a fake beard. That'd get my vote too.
