of election literature that is. Over the past month or thereabouts I have
received 12 different items about the general election from the Conservatives
and none at all from Labour. Ive also had one each from the BNP, Christian Peoples
Alliance, English Democrats, Greens, an Independent, Liberals and UKIP. Weird
that nothing came from Labour; I was a dont know when the election was called
but Labour seems to be complacent in Erith & Thamesmead this time around. Just by
chance Ive bumped into rosette wearing Conservatives three times in as many weeks while
walking around locally. No others.
I think I found the Christian Peoples Alliance leaflet the most interesting read but there are more important things at stake than their complaints and the Independent candidate rather blew it for me by picturing himself alongside the now deceased former MP, Bernie Grant. I used to work on the same job as Bernie Grant and his brother in the 1970s. One was a hard working and decent man and the other was a rogue who was eventually dismissed for dishonesty. You can guess which one went on to become an MP.
