 After all the kerfuffle about posties having the choice not to personally deliver BNP leaflets as long as they got through somehow (my god, the censorship - imagine, leaflets getting through) the EU election material that has arrived at this house so far has been for the following parties:
  • No2EU
  • The BNP
I'm aware that this isn't anything local, given that election leaflets are distributed nationally. Even if they had the option the BNP wouldn't bother trying to leaflet this area deliberately, unless they were on a wind-up. I would quite like to see a bit more though; it's not as if it is going to make me change my vote (which is 99% certain to be Green) but it would at least tell me a bit more about the strategies of the parties concerned. Also, the No2EU leaflet was very boring, and the BNP's looked like a badly-printed pizza delivery one. They're not even offering free garlic bread if you vote to throw black people out of the country, either.

In Twickenham we've had BNP, UKIP, Christian People's Alliance and the Green Party so far. I didn't bother to read any as I already know I'm voting for Jean Lambert.

You urban people are SO lucky! Out here in the sticks we have boring Conservative, Lib Dem, Labour and, our only excitement, UKIP. Few of us get leaflets - we get 250 words from each of them in the local paper with truly awful pictures of them all either looking stupidly happy (Con, Lib Dem) or morosely sad (Lab, UKIP). The highlights of their "vote for me" campaigns are things like "I got a big pothole in the road filled" or "I once met David Cameron for approximately 10 seconds - he's my best friend".

Oh for a Green or a No2EU to spice up our dull lives.
