I found this very interesting. 1093 people out of 2103 voted for David “No Chairs” Smith. I guess there’s a lot of people wanting to see him standing up and fighting navvies in fields. Good for you Mr Smith. I expect to be at your first fight please. I’ll bring my chair. You can stand.

 

I’m really looking forward to that. I don’t particularly go in for boxing but I’m all for making sure people stick to their promises. David Smith promised me fighting in the fields with navvies, I’m going to make sure that he sticks to his promises. He also promised he would stand up throughout his campaign. If I see him sitting, I’ll make sure the world knows.

 

What the results also show is that out of 5048 people 2945 either forgot to vote or stayed at home. That is terrible.

 

However it does offer some hope.  I hope Emma “I don’t really want to win” Collins pays attention here. Just by being proactive and going out, meeting the electorate, telling them how you can help them, you can easily get into local government. 2945 people obviously needed persuasion.

 

So here is my plan for the next local election.

 

– Enter the election

– Make sure I visit every house in the ward and speak to every voter

– I’ll listen to all the concerns and ensure that my promises aren’t empty.

– For the properties where people are not available to talk, I’ll ensure there is informative literature to leave including contact details and links to social media accounts and web pages.

– Sit back

– Watch the votes come in.

– Win

– Be accountable

 

The general election might be a bit trickier to win but I’ll start small, work my way up and generate respect from the electorate.

 

In the meantime, I’m going to get my wellies out of the garage in preparation for watching Mr Smith fight navvies.

 

He’s going to get a pasting…..

Once, long ago, I wrote frequently on Livejournal. I then moved to Blogspot, where I discovered that blogging requires an audience. So I moved back to LJ. Then over to Dreamwidth, back to LJ, up the road of self hosting with Muckybadger before giving up entirely and moving over to Wordpress. It was at that moment I decided I would spread my compostual nonsense simultaneously across the blogosphere like some rancid margarine. And so here I am. I am a badger. But then I'm not really a badger. I am a human. With badger like tendencies. I am a writer, a film producer and a social commentator. I am available for Breakfast TV shows, documentaries and chats in the pub with journalists.
