Voting begins on Thursday 13th???

I think not! Voting began a week or ten days ago when registered postal voters received their ballot papers.

Since then, I've had three Labour leaflets, two Conservative leaflets and one from some (but not all) of the other candidates.

Canvassers should note that they are wasting trees, ink and their time by putting their printed messages through the letterboxes of those who choose to vote by post AFTER the postal voting slips have been delivered as I suspect that most, such as myself, return the postal vote a day or so after the voting papers are received....
