Chelliah Laity said...

It has been almost impossible to reach voters because of process difficulties i.e release of email addresses. The initiative that you propose is a marvellous idea. Thank you.

Here's my election address, even though only Southern Suffragan Bishop could vote for me:


For my money there is omething very problematic about how people get to know what choices they have. I am visiting hustings in Bucks to see whether this is a problem, and, inevitably, I suppose, will blog the result...
