LET (some of) THE PEOPLE SPEAK
Huttonian and the wife did their civic duty and rushed down Kirk Lane to vote. We found that we were about no 30 and 31 to have done so and actually had to wait in a queue (of three-us and one them) before we could get our ballot papers. We just missed the SNP parliamentary and Local Council elections' candidate-she had to vote herself-daughter would not do on this occasion. The Post Office was open but the Post Mistress has to cast her vote in Paxton-irritating that as she sits 15 feet from the voting booth. Other wise it was very quiet. A villager told me that the Police were making frequent visits in their patrol car. Why?
Crowd Control, apparently.
PS the images above are a testimony to the effectiveness of crowd control measures this morning. Well done Borders and East Lothian Police. Rebus would be proud of you
