|Leafleting and canvassing schedule has had its up and downs, but with re-enforcements drafted in today from Swansea Green Party, courtesy of Keith Ross, we are back on schedule to complete planned activity tomorrow.
We have had issues with the Risograph printing facilities at Wales Green Party HQ, with graphics compromised a bit and an inability to print the reverse side of the last leaflet, but, overall, feedback has been positive.
The young lady standing as an Independent has broken cover and seems to be taking the line that we cannot trust the established parties to deliver on their promises. The Labour campaigning has been based on trying to take credit for things they have little influence on (re-building the school wrecked by fire, the Life Centre) and making a big thing of their candidate having lived there once upon a time. The Tories appear to have wasted no printed material or shoe rubber at all – which is one of their most sensible and greenest decisions they have made for a long, long time.
In all, it looks set for an interesting two way battle between us and Labour – with the Independent a potentially minor, but significant factor – if it proves as close as we hope (and the Tory completely inconsequential).
I hope to be able to post the result before midnight on Thursday – so watch this space!
