24 May (Part 4) - Weak and wobbly

BaxterYou 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.

EventsAnna 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.
