Commiserations to Boothy

BoothMy friend and LEWIS colleague, Clive Booth stood as the Conservative MP candidate for the City of York in the UK elections tonight. Sorry to see you didn’t get in Boothy but it was a big majority to beat (10,000+ votes). Regardless of one’s politics, it was good to see a candidate using video CDs and innovative tactics to mobilize the voters. And good to see someone stand for what they believe in and put themselves forward, knowing that the odds were against them. That takes courage.
