A town of empty shops and “Vote Labour” signs
On Monday, I noticed another two shops in town had closed and lie completely empty. They are adjacent and in a street facing three other empty shops, right in the centre of town. Visitors would be forgiven for thinking that we are trying hard to win Ghost Town of the Year 2010. Instead of tumbleweeds blowing through the streets, we have litter.
Today, I noticed that signs on wooden poles had been erected in several front gardens. Each and every one was urging the town to re-elect our Labour MP. The only good thing about this is that Cleggmania doesn’t appear to have arrived.
I had the urge to pull one of the signs out, put I thought, no, even truly stupid people have the right to express their opinion.
