Vote Vote Vote for Dickon Edwards

I’m standing for governmental election on May 4th. Oh yes! Well, if Adam Rickitt and Arnold Schwarzeneggar can do it, I don’t see why I can’t.

Specifically, The Green Party have asked me to be one of their candidates for local government this year: Haringey Council, Highgate Ward. I’ll be there on the ballot paper.

I promise to refrain from ever using the words ‘inappropriate’ or ‘error of judgement’ in official statements. That alone makes me pretty unique.

If nothing else, I want to generate a bit of publicity and visibility for the Green Party and for the local elections themselves, which tend to have a notoriously low turnout. Getting people to use their vote is something I do feel strongly about.
