Had Catherine Connolly call to my door about two weeks ago. Handed me a NO leaflet but left pretty promptly when I told her that I couldn't vote as I'm not Irish

Not that I don't think she's completely useless, but what did you expect her to do exactly? Shoot the breeze for the afternoon at your porch?

After reading this thread earlier. I was going to post no. But finally someone from the socialist party turned up. So the answer is yes. We had a friendly chat even though I'm no socialist.

But if any of the yes people turn up it will be less friendly. It's one thing to be lied to on posters and on television. But it's quite another to be lied to on my own doorstep.

Nobody called to the house but my mother was in town yesterday. The No camp had a table set near/outside Taffes. She said that they seemed put out if you didn't accept their leaflets. (i'd encourage eveyone to ignore the leaflets from both sides and stick to the commission information, treaty & constitutional amendment)

The "no" side were around with leaflets one evening. Much like another poster, we've a no junkmail sign and the guy asked if I'd like a leaflet. He was a gentleman.

Also saw a crowd had a stand on Shop Street last Friday for the NO vote.

Heard nothing from the YES side. All I needed really was the referendum commission booklet and my minds made up but good to see at least one side actively engaging people.

Live in town, the only leaflets/booklets we got are the Referendum Commisission ones, no yes or no propaganda.
no, they have no problem talking to people.

I also think I saw Billy Cameron and a few of his entourage (Labour yes canvassers) doing the rounds of his Shantalla neighbourhood this week.

Still haven't been visited by the Profit Before People (FF and FG) alliance campaigners
contradiction in terms?? LABOUR AND YES.

ah sure it's not the labour party anymore is it - they should re-name themselves - the yellow party (along the lines of the green party, as that's where these will end up too)

I could never be a politician. I have principles and can't lie without blushing.

In the old days a delegation from the PDs arrived at my house. Their leading lady looked at me before I had even said hello and says 'you're not Irish are you?' and they all turned on their heels and left (had my hippie hat on).
Met them later when I was walking the dog and said 'howaya now. Catherine is up the road. Tell her I said hello if ye bang into her'. They went into a huddle to discuss their boo boo.
Back on topic nobody has come near my door yet but a few NO people have chatted to me on the street. Also I nearly took my eye out on a NO poster that had either slipped down the pole or was erected too low in the first place.
