There was an election May 09

Having spent the last week barely eating or sleeping, I’m not sure I’m up to a detailed recounting on the strenuous campaign I was helping to fight in London. I was pleased that my work in the early hours of Thursday morning got a mention in the Guardian:

By 7am, activists had printed a new leaflet with flattering quotes about their candidate from the day’s Times.

I was hunched over a duplicating machine for a couple of hours in the middle of the night doing that. After a few hours’ sleep, I spent most of polling day in a small room with two computers and piles of paper. Then off to the count (for a disappointing result that really didn’t do the campaign justice) and finally back to HQ to watch the rest on TV.
