How’s your campaign going?

LDV is hoping to bring a series of podcasts from the campaign trail this April in the run up to a big set of local elections across the country.  (If you don’t know who’s having elections, Keith Edkins has a handy trailer.  “Cheshire West and Chester” sounds like a clumsy name for a local authority!)

You can use this to promote your local campaign, appeal for help, and tell us what’s happening in your neck of the woods.

There are two ways to take part: volunteer to take part in a telephone interview or just get on the  blower to the Podcast Hotline on 020 7617 7221.

Either way, please drop me a line on [email protected]

Topics you might like to cover if you’re going it alone on the Podcast Hotline: how’s your campaign going?  How many hundreds of thousands of leaflets are you putting out? What are the themes of your campaign and your key messages?  Are you hoping to hold, increase, fight fire or wipe-out a third party? Do you need outside help? What are the other parties?  Any fringe candidates putting their heads over the parapet?

    Ugh, “Cheshire West and Chester UA” is surely the worst local authority name in British history. Who comes up with this rubbish?

  • Yes, the 1973 reforms served up some bizarre authorities and names.

    How about “Basingstoke and Deane” or “Shrewsbury and Atcham”? Or “Babergh” or “Forest Heath”?

    Just what did Atcham ever do to be placed alongside Shrewsbury?

    And the “Forest” is a hideous conifer plantation that has ruined the ancient “Heath”.
