A letter from the Saturday (March 6th) edition of "The Times" may
provide a moment of amusement;
Sir, In my Kentish hamlet we have the ultimate in voting as a social
occasion (letter, March 3) since the polling station is in the saloon bar
of the local public house. This has enabled us to achieve the highest
voter turnouts, in percentage terms, in the district.
It is alleged that we also usually have the highest number of spoilt
ballot papers in the country. This rumour is completely untrue, the
source being rival persons wanting to take over my duties.
(Presiding Officer, 1982 to date)
