I've had no cold calls yet, and so far 2 leaflet drops
(both from the local Tories) in Central London.

The whoshouldyouvotefor site offered me the LibDems,
as they 'take a strong stand against tax cuts and a
strong one in favour of public services: they would
make long-term residential care for the elderly free
across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They
are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places,
but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to
change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather
than ownership.'

So far this campaign has hardly come alive!
