WHAT A DUMP
The prolific Mr Lamont, following cutting another swathe through the remains of the Borneo rain forest has sent around (courtesy of Royal Mail) what we all hope is his last effusion. A letter to me and to the wife-what a waste-does he not know we steam open and recycle each others mail? And an extra enclosure each: 'information about how you should complete your ballot paper on election day'(see image) He hopes we will find it 'useful. Me, I find it infuriating and somewhat patronising and I am sure enough others will do so as well to ensure that most x's and 'No 1s' go elsewhere. I wonder if he fully realises that doing a No 1 has a rather a different meaning in another context. Perhaps he does and 'The Scottish Conservative Party : The People that Dumps on You!' is the precise message he wishes to convey. And if you are going to be dumped upon in the local council elections in East Berwickshire it seems that #One, Big Jim Conundrum is the man to do it.
See you when the Polls open. Hutton Village Hall is ready. Two booths to protect your privacy. And if you come at the right time you can buy a stamp or two from our Post Office to make your visit worthwhile.
And who is Huttonian voting for? I hear you cry.
