Yesterday afternoon was warm and sunny – good weather for canvassing, because people always seem more willing to talk in good weather.
One of us met up with a one fit and healthy looking gent who seemed about 65 years of age. He was just wearing a vest on top and probably sunbathing in the garden . “Oh, he said, I’m too old to worry about the state of the country, I won’t be voting”.
“Ah,” said the Lib Dem canvasser, ” you can’t be older than Ming Campbell , you should still vote”
“Well” the chap said “Unless he’s 78, I am older than him”, and he very cheerfully said goodbye.
But if you have the chance to vote this year, please do so!
