I recall an occasion when I spent some time trying to persuade a potential voter in Rhyl of the virtues of Plaid Cymru, only to be told that the party, the candidate and the policies sound like a load of shi*e to me!
Who are you going to vote for then? I asked, so that I could record his opposition accurately on my returns!
Well me mate Neil Taylor, of course said voter.
Neil Taylor WAS the Plaid candidate!
I was tickled by this story from Kezia Dugdale's account of canvasing in Glasgow East:
The Tories are in a spot of bother. A couple of guys in my blitzing team this afternoon chapped every door in a street where the Tories had sent direct mails. Problem was, the Tories didn't put enough postage on the letters and each voter had to go to the Post Office and pay £1.27 to retrieve it - you can imagine how well that went down!
True or not, it made me giggle!
