This afternoon I was building my son's new bed up and whilst taking a breather, observed a car pull up right at the end of my road. Out of the car came a bald man, wearing glasses, who I would guess was about retirement age. He got out of the passengers side, pointed to my house, then strolled up with one leaflet, pushed it through my door, returned to the car where the driver was waiting (engine running) and then drove off.
I looked downstairs to find one Tory leaflet (a dreadfully wordy partially handwritten, partially printed style leaflet) was sitting on my doorstep.
Now I have offered to print leaflets to this blog if they are sent in digital form. But instead of doing this much more environmentally friendly thing, it appears that the Tories are leafleting my house only, even using up the time of two people and driving here in order to make me believe that more leaflets are going out than there really are.
How does this fit with the Tories "eco" credentials ? Does it tell us that the Tories are not getting all their leaflets out as easily as they hoped ?
