Amongst my campaigning peregrinations today, I was delivering leaflets in Putney for John Munro in the Southfields by-election (Wandsworth) and then at a fundraiser for Barnet Liberal Democrats where Jane Gibson is fighting the East Finchley by-election.
It is good to see how the local team in Wandsworth is putting the sudden glut of by-elections (two, which on the Wandsworth scale of things is a huge number) to good use, for example testing out using Connect for real in this contest. It’s a great example of how to use council by-elections to help build the local organisation.
Over in Barnet I did fear I would be trapped in a never-ending raffle loop when a book of raffle tickets was put on the tray containing the prizes… but luckily it was quickly removed again before we were all left in an endless loop.
- The Wandsworth by-election polls this Thursday. Details of how to help John and Putney Liberal Democrats are here.
- There is a bit longer to help in the East Finchley by-election as it is on 11 April. You can get in touch with Jane Gibson and the Barnet team here.
