I’ve just received the first leaflet through my letterbox for the coming local elections. It is from Derique Montaut (or is it Derique Montaur, it is hard to tell, as the spelling is different on each side of the leaflet) who is, it says, ‘working hard in central ward’. I guess that is why the ward news section of his party’s website hasn’t been updated since January 2006. The, rather small, leaflet that he left says ‘Derique Montaut called today. Sorry I missed you!’. But Derique, you didn’t, I was in. You just couldn’t be bothered to knock on the door and talk!
