The Importance of saying Thank You -a leaflet from Southport in 1910

Saying thank you properly after an election is so important. There is nothing worse when you finish the count-whether you have won or lost -for nobody to have thought about a party for everyone to wind down and talk over the election. This is particularly true in a General Election when so many folk have put their lives on hold, desserted their families and taken annual leave to help with campaign. Michael Braham's book -available online at our website has some excellent examples. 
On this blog we have written a lot  about the first 1910 election when Baron de Forest was the candidate but there were two 1910 election and in the second Mr Woodcock was the candidate. He went on to become a Judge. sadly he lost -by less that 700 votes. The card from  him and his wife was sent to all workers.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
