Slugger on Nolan…

If you didn’t catch it this morning Slugger and our ‘has a politician called at your door’ poll featured on the Nolan Show this morning. Most callers were irrate (in various degees) that no one had called to their door. In defence of our political class, our rough and ready (and statistically unreliable) poll said that half of our readers had had a politician at their doors, and half did not. Most of our political parties have limited budgets and limited personnel, and biggish constituencies. There are more than a few candidates suffering from mild exhaustion.

However, one blind listener pointed out that leafleting was not good enough for her: face to face contact was the only thing that would motivate her to get out and vote. Something can be done about that, surely?
