Finally, I have been contacted by one of the politcal parties about this week’s local elections.

The prize goes to the Lewisham LibDems, who were the first to push a leaflet through my door. And, to date, they remain the only party to have made any direct contact with me.

Everyone whines about voter apathy, but if the political parties can’t be bothered to canvass their electorate, why should people bother to vote?
