On the Stump and at the wheel
One can hardly but admire the laid back canvassing style of the would be MSP and/or local councillor representing the SNP. On my way down Kirk Lane I met a young lady clutching a few Party Political puffs (Berwickshire StandardSNP
) I offered to take one off her to save a knock at our door and told her where she could find the other denizens in these here parts. She explained that she was the candidate's daughter distibuting the literature and went on her way. At the bottom of the lane the candidate herself was sitting in her 4wd gas guzzler awaiting the daughter's return and no doubt working on on of her acceptance speeches. Nice relaxed way of spreading the word -no need to press the flesh, kiss the baby or give a spiel.
A bloggee from Paxton reports a similar approach in that metropolis. This time from within her garden she heard the candidate, ensconced in the cattle wagon instruct her little helpers :' Hand these out and waste no time in idle chat' or words to that effect.
And I have to report that only the SNP have posters up in Hutton and quite a long way up a couple of poles. Well done those kids
Nice work if you
can get someone else to do it
(Note to other parties. Can't you spare a poster or two? Are we being taken for granted
