They don't make them like this any more...

We are in the process of delivering 100,000 surveys to target voters across our six West Kent constituencies, all printed, mail merged and packed in house. Anyone who has asked 100,000 people for their views will have an inkling of what we are going through. On Monday our post did not arrive; when Cllr Paperclips complained he was told "we know - you have so much we are sending it in a van."  It took two volunteers almost four hours just to open the envelopes!

As our teams data-capture the surveys in relays, candidates go straight to the "issues box" to see what people are thinking. I go straight to the VI to see how they will vote. Agents are from Mars / Candidates are from Venus! 

Today however we found a real delight. Stapled onto a survey was this note from a resident of Maidstone. They don't make them like this any more (more's the pity).
