On Tuesday we held the second Northfield ward forum, more on that later. In passing David Millican, one of our three councillors, told me he had been canvassed by Labour – by an automated telephone call. The same thing happened to me last night. The call went along the lines of “If you are going to vote Labour press 1, if you are going to …”.
I hate anyone calling me, especially in the evening, unless they are a real person I want to talk to. Automated calls just make me foam with anger. Machines don’t have lives they just just waste ours!
No doubt Brown is trying to work out whether to go to the country. I wouldn’t trust the result from automated canvassing.
