"The trade union candidate guy"

AS THE Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition Candidate for Spelthorne in Surrey, I delivered our 43,800 election leaflets to the Royal Mail last week. When I pulled into the loading bay half a dozen postal workers were gathered there - apparently waiting in anticipation for the arrival of the 'trade union candidate guy'.
Whilst unloading the boxes from my car another three or four workers came over and we had an impromptu 'workplace meeting'. None of the workers live in Spelthorne so couldn't vote for me but they were all very enthusiastic that someone was making a stand for the unions and for working people.
They said they had taken delivery of leaflets from a few parties but I was the only candidate who had stopped to talk. They promised me they would cherish my leaflets and have them delivered immediately.
