Someone at the golf club said last week as I was talking to a friend: “it’s no good talking to him, he doesn’t live in your constituency”.
I’ve certainly become much more aware of voters. I look at people. I can’t help but assess them. Do they live in Bamburgh Division? No? Oh well, let’s move on. They can wait till May 2nd. Do they look Lib Dem? Tory? Labour? Independent even? Or probably the largest group, indifferent? (That’s not indifferent to events and problems, its indifferent to the politicians they see as making at best no difference).
Do people look like their party? Many do: it can be spotted. Try it.
