I was out canvassing last night for next Thursday's local elections, when I saw coming towards me a smartly dressed young lady with a clip board.
I looked at her suspiciously wondering what she was up to. She looked at me in much the same fashion.
We both asked the other, "what are you up to."
I said I am canvassing for the Conservative Party. She said 'I am knocking on doors for Southern Electric.' I said 'oh I thought you were the opposition (the Labour Party).' She said 'me too, I thought you were British Gas!'
I had to smile. The good news is she is voting Conservative.
