Just in case any Northern Ireland readers are getting withdrawal symptoms from the lack of a chance to vote in the last six months ... I bring you news from the local council poll in Gloucester.
Out for a walk, I nearly walked past a polling station without noticing. Six cars parked outside a Church of England church hall (three of which probably belong to the poll clerks!) doesn't make for brisk polling.
So I'd say thay at 10.30am polling is slow in Barnwood, Gloucester.
For completeness I'll post back after the count to let you know if the newsletter-yielding candidates beat the invisible councillors - as I posted a couple of days ago.
Oh, and don't forget the competition posted last night. Entries welcomed.
