Being able to get it up is essential, as we all know. My banner went up at 1pm. It cost me £40 as I had forgotten (chanced it?) to put up my pay card. Suki Blyat!
I am glad that Trevor and I are doing it in tandem.
As I struggled to twist Wehrmacht surplus wire around railings, there arrived two rough handed fellows, paid each a shilling, to put up the anemic A4 posters of Mrs O’Keefe Burgher (Uniform Black and White Establishment Party Colours) next to Trevor’s monster. They were actually very polite and asked me if it was OK to put them up. Naturally I consented.
Incidentally, we need more railings asap so that the entire roundabout can be encircled.
I chatted to the parking attendant who booked me and tried to get her to vote. She lives in No.3 St Helier and I mentioned a few names of candidates sympathetic to the people’s cause. As a manual worker she is a member of Unite the Union. Naturally she will not be voting.
Why do I say naturally she won’t be voting? Well, because voter abstention is very high amongst the working people in St. Helier. She hates the States Members and hates reading the JEP. Such admirable sentiment is not enough to get her voting, try as I might to win her to the side of the Angels.
I did enquire if the Union provided any political education. You know the answer. Ah well, I shall add that to the ever growing post election “to do” list (win or loose).
