36. ...

i've voted as well - we have PCC, district and town council elections - turnout at 9.15 (ish) was surprisingly brisk, and all well into the 'retired' demographic...

the LD's were on the door but no one else was was, theres been some town and district campaigning and a couple of leaflets from Tory, Labour and IHC, but nothing from UKIP and LD.

the PCC (West Mercia) election is a joke - we've had one leaflet from the tory and thats it - nothing from anyone else. i had to go online to find out who was standing, and the Greens have completely missed a trick by having what appears to be a very good candidate but theres been no publicity or campaigning for him at all...

the Labour candidate comes over an indentikit right-on lefty - with a centrally prepared campaign statement, you could almost see the insert name of police force area here gaps in the blurb... in truth he may well have gone down well in London, but here he just had people looking at the floor in embarrassment. the constituancies in West Mercia just aren't Corbynite territory, and it looks to me like the party at a local level wanted nothing to do with him.
