still wouldn’t think, at least not in Erith & Thamesmead, that there will be a
General Election in two weeks’ time. I’ve seen not a single election leaflet and the only
window poster I have spotted is at an address I know to be occupied by one of
Teresa Pearce’s (Labour) staff members.
I have kept my eye on Edward Baxter’s website (Conservative) for any developments but it seems something of a mess to me. I have no idea what the Previous Events page is all about.
However I briefly spoke to him this evening, very briefly, I doubt he gave me even ten seconds during which time he promised that his leaflets would be along quite soon.
Ten seconds is not enough time to form a really reliable impression but I felt none of the charisma and enthusiasm that one could easily discern in his predecessor Anna Firth.
Anna would have driven round to my house personally to make sure I had her latest leaflet. It will take a lot to persuade me to vote Conservative this time although a list of Jeremy Corbyn’s meetings with unsavoury people might just do the trick.
Despite that I don’t think Edward Baxter stands a snowball’s chance in hell in Erith & Thamesmead.
I’m not unhappy about that.
