Only one party canvassed us. Only one party sent any election materials. Only two of the five candidates live within the constituency and three within the borough. One of the two (the UKIP candidate) withheld his address. I have cast my postal vote to the candidate who lives within the borough who could be bothered to seek my vote.
If the others come knocking now, it is too late. I shall invite them (apart from the UKIP one) in for a cup of tea and a chat but after wasting their time, tell them politely that they should have come sooner. Actually, that wouldn't have worked. There is a good reason why they haven't campaigned and that is because we have a very good MP whose majority grows with each election - from a couple of hundred to 12,000.
