A day in the Cromer office designing literature and trying to juggle the election budget. During the election campaign itself we are allowed to spend a maximum of £12,500. We have to legally account for every penny we spend, so the budgeting process is pretty crucial. If you think that one election address costs little short of £2,000 you can see that it's not easy to do all you want during the campaign. This is why there is so much acitivity in advance of the campaign itself.
As the St Benet's by-election enters its final stages we'll be putting out our final literature tomorrow. I wonder what effect the cold weather will have on the turnout. At Happisburgh it was 50% and I would expect something similar on Tuesday.
