Tune in to the Westminster Hour tonight. From 10.45 they have a 15 programme on election agents, which sounds fascinating. The second part is next week. Giles Edwards, who has produced the programme has written about it HERE.
I learnt much of what I know about constituency politics from two redoubtable agents in Norwich - Phyllis Reeve and Audrey Barker. Both won't mind me saying that they were of the battleaxe variety of agent. They didn't stand for any nonsense from their candidates but what they didn't know about running elections wasn't worth knowing.
