The best canvassing story of any election, ever – no, really

Hard to beat this canvassing story from Liberal Democrat Prue Bray in the 2015 general election, which I think fully delivers on my headline:

Is this a first? On the doorstep today a lady told me about some friends of hers who are so keen on me as a councillor that for Christmas the wife made the husband a board game about me, where all the pieces are made out of photos of me cut out of our Focuses. And they play it. Regularly.

No parrots, though.

  1. This is part of a long tradition of Liberal boardgaming – one of the original versions of what is now known as monopoly was launched as a fundraising game by Scottish liberals. That version attacked Tory landlord “monopolies” – a lesson for us today!
