No one had ever mentioned, though I should have guessed, that once you become a prospective parliamentary candidate the amount of literature from lobby groups and charities is enormous. Most are fine and well intended, but you still have to read everything and then decide if personally I, as well as the party, should be signing up to their causes.
I’ve so far been very supportive of most of the charities, yet to respond to some of the industrial groups, but I’ll get round to it.
Update n.b. I should add that none of the lobby groups are doing anything other than telling me what they stand for and would like to see e.g. the Forum of Private Business.
