Sarah Teather goes canvassing Jun 07

The Times reports an incident that occurred when Sarah Teather went canvassing in the Bromley & Chislehurst by-election:

ST: Hello! I’m calling on behalf of the Liberal Democrats. Who will you be voting for?
Man: Who do you think?
ST: I don’t know.
Man: You’re not very observant are you?
ST: (Scanning windows for posters) Aren’t I? Who?
Man: Can’t you guess?
ST: (A touch desperately) Should I take the lead from a blue shirt?
John Spellar, Labour MP for Warley: Oh for God’s sake. (SLAM)

In the words of the children’s book series, Where’s Warley?

    To be fair to Sarah, I probably wouldn’t recognise John Spellar if I met him.

  2. Perfectly sensible that the Labour MP for Warley should be living in Bromley and Chislehurst, it’s only a what… 2-3 hour commute.

    I’d recognise him, but only because he… how can I put this politely? He has a distinctive look.

  4. I would but then I stood in Warley last time
