    Brilliant, a devoted Kipper to the core!! Well done, you will certainly be well known in your area by the time to vote comes again even if it is the man who delivered leaflets in the rain!!

    Ah, the joys of leafleting! Recalcitrant gates, gates that stick on the path and punch you in the stomach; letterboxes that are designed to reject anything you try to insert except your fingers, letterboxes positioned so near the ground you have to kneel to get anything in; dogs that bark maniacally and are intent on having at least one finger for lunch; sneaky, quiet dogs that lie in wait hoping for the unwary leafleter to offer a whole hand; long, long uphill drives and endless steps; gardens like rain forests with impenetrable undergrowth and overgrowth; dangerous wobbly garden paths or nothing but dusty gravel that gets in your shoes; notices on doors sternly warning ‘No Junk Mail’. My reply to an irate householder who pointed to the latter: “Sir, this is not junk mail, but an important election message to assist your participation in the democratic process. I am not trying to sell you pizza.” When he grunted, “I don’t vote”, I went away pleased that I had annoyed him.

    Of course, the other Parties have workers too, and no doubt could make very similar observations. However; – ”UKIP is different because we have time to speak to people, and even when feeling tired, somehow we have a spring in our step due to expectations for the vote.” This is what I was told by a Kipper, working for the Party, who saw my UKIP window display. An immediate empathy for this young guy was felt by me, along with annoyance at my age and my infirmity ! No doubt this is why I feel that I have to join the comments here on Kipper Central, so many Thanks Marv. Much appreciated !

    Marv – what a star. Keep active in your ward on local issues, keep putting out newsletters etc and you should do even better next year.Maybe even Cllr Hollingworth

    Why do you blame the wrong people for Ukips troubles. Those who do not believe in democracy are the culprits. Ukip can only survive if they are driven out of the Party.
