Wet, wet, wet

The Copeland by-election started and finished with two tremendous storms hitting Britain - I don't think it has been quite as extreme today but we certainly got drenched out campaigning to Get Out The Vote today.

I recall that back when Maggie Thatcher was PM if an elections was held in such heavy rain and I called on people while soaking wet, I used to say something like "Good evening, I'm calling on  behalf of the dripping wet wing of the Conservative party ..."

Often used to get a good laugh with that line back then but not too many people remember "wets" and "dries" these days. Sic Transit Gloria Mundi.

Now back to work ...
