5 May - It’s the Tories by a landslide…

Bernie Grant…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. I’ve also had one each from the BNP, Christian People’s Alliance, English Democrats, Greens, an Independent, Liberals and UKIP. Weird that nothing came from Labour; I was a “don’t know” when the election was called but Labour seems to be complacent in Erith & Thamesmead this time around. Just by chance I’ve bumped into rosette wearing Conservatives three times in as many weeks while walking around locally. No others.

I think I found the Christian People’s 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.
