It’s all about the biscuits
Last year I went to a public meeting about a planned 'gasification plant' near where I live. Basically, a plant that would burn down the rubbish we can no longer export to China, and won't be able to export to Germany/Norway after Brexit. I was pleasantly surprised to see that about 2 dozens people had showed up... however half a dozen of them (little old ladies and little old gentlemen) left before the meeting even started. They had seen the meeting advertised as they walked past, and had just turned up to get free biscuits and tea!!!

If there is an election, can we have an option to vote the whole lot of them out and start again?

I went to an event yesterday featuring Vince Cable. He wants a General Election and 2nd Referendum on the same day next May. Wouldn't that be fun to work on?

An interesting read about the perils of a December election

not sure I agree with it being a struggle to find places to take the voting. If Weight Waters can run every Tuesday at a local church hall I'm sure they can be booted out for 1 day!!

If someone can't be bothered to vote because of a bit of bad weather you have to wonder how much they believe in their party/politician to begin with.

Have they not got an elections team you can contact?
I've sent the "Contact-Us" an e-mail.
At the moment our site is still showing as no forthcoming elections - takes word a bit longer to get out to the sticks :)

Just had a message bak from the council:

Until the House of Lords approves the Bill and it receives Royal Assent there is no General Election. Until the Returning Officer receives the Writ from the Queen commanding him to hold an Election we are unable to progress with any bookings or staff appointments.

I'll keep checking the site once it has all been approved

That’s a long way of writing “please contact us next week”

It's a nice little earner just before Christmas, but people who want to work as a Poll Clerk for the first time just need to remember that it's for 16 hours work (15 hours that the poll is actually open+ 1 hour setting up/taking down of equipment) and of course it will be taxed if you're a taxpayer.

At my Council you are also not allowed to leave the Polling Station at any point during the day (though you get breaks for meals up until 5 p.m.)

See I've never done that role before. I've only even done the 'show up at night for counting' one which seemed to mainly be about eating haribo inbetween the counting!

Well the leaders are on the campaign trail now so I'm not sure they can hold out much longer saying they aren't recruiting yet!
