On the way home I saw outside the local polling station, the Epping community hall, posters of John Alexander in every possible placement spot outside. There are far more there than they needed to get their message across - the only reason to do that, and to do so before the sun went down on the day before the election, is to deprive all other candidates of a voice.
That is absolutely disgraceful and dishonourable conduct. Elections are about giving the people a choice. If you have the best interests of the nation at heart, which any candidate for election ought to, then you should not only allow others to have their say, you should positively encourage it so that the voters do have a genuine choice. If Alexander's team thinks that their own interest in getting Alexander elected overrides the democratic right of voters to know of all the options, then they and, one must infer if this situation is not quickly corrected, their candidate, are entirely unsuitable for any position of responsibility within that system or within the political parties that claim to support it.
