Election already over in nearly 400 seats – Electoral Reform Society The Electoral Reform Society believe that there's 382 safe seats – that's over half the seats in parliament – that just won't change hands in this forthcoming election. One of them is Mitcham and Morden where the current Labour MP's 60,000 odd majority seems unlikely to be toppled. (Siobhain McDonagh seems to be noted mainly for spending more on stationary than every other MP and the fact she tried and failed to topple Gordon Brown.)

Some more election leaflets have come in since the last batch was reviewed. And it's new entries from Labour, the Tories, and a re-entry in the letter box, from the Greens.
With less than a week to go before the election, you have to ponder who to vote for. Well I haven't met any of the candidates and I haven't even seen them anywhere, although Apparently the Greens did a hustings session last week. So what about literature - the stuff shoved through the door.
Just under a month ago, I mentioned the errection of two large, metal billboards on a small patch of grass right outside Colliers Wood tube station, next to the Brown and Root Tower. And now I write again.
