We've had 4 Lib Dem leaflets through the door, and one from Labour. And that's it to date.
That's in Riverside Ward, so would be interested to hear if Labour are targeting those around Elephant & Castle.
I live at the Elephant.
So far I have received four leaflets and one door knock from Labour, and also a letter on House of Commons stationery from Neil Coyle
posted just before the dissolution of Parliament.
I have also received one Lib Dem leaflet but no door knocks.
None of the other candidates for Bermondsey and Old Southwark have dropped off leaflets or knocked at my door.
I don't know what the current statistics are saying, but I have a feeling that this is going to be a very close call for Coyle and Hughes:
Some people once voted for Hughes, but at the 2012 elections felt it was time for a change and voted for Coyle. Some of these may well regret having done so and could revert their preference to Hughes.
Others, who are Labour through and through, may decide to vote against Coyle due to his disloyalty towards Corbyn, and his 'little snitch' behaviour displayed when he recently reported Hughes to the police.
Some people, instead, are still disappointed at the Tory-Lib Dem coalition government, so they may well vote for Coyle.
Either way, whoever of the two candidates ends up in Westminster will be part of the opposition to the Tories.
Personally, I am supporting Simon Hughes
