Canvassing tales

Hunter was doing a spot of canvassing the other day and met a charming woman of West Indian origin. "Which Party would you be likely to support if an election were held tomorrow?” Hunter enquired. Voter: "Either UKIP or the Lib Dems. I really don't think we should be in Europe, so perhaps the Lib Dems?” Incredible, isn't it? Needless to say, Hunter said that all sensible Euro-sceptics should vote Conservative.

Moments later, I handed a voter a leaflet which mentions our Party's desire to end global poverty. Voter: "Yeah, I agree. I was in Spain last year and I couldn’t bleedin' believe it! Their cats were as skinny as rakes!" You can't say much to that, can you?

Do you have any funny canvassing tales to share with us?

Why were you surprised?
Woman A's last DimLeb canvasser probably heard her views and assured her they were a euro-sceptic party.
and Woman B, like most Brits obviously cares far more about animal welfare, than about people.
