Campaigners’ weather forecast

It’s lovely now! Go outside and do some leafleting!

But there is a storm coming later this week – my RSS feed of severe weather warnings tells me there are warnings in place for Tuesday from 2am to midnight for very heavy rain and even snow on high ground. So, for Tuesday, it might make sense to plan some indoor activity – preparing your leaflets, researching your stories and making some phone calls.

The warning appears to apply for from the Midlands and further north, Northern Ireland, but not Scotland, so key seats from Watford to Durham and Cardiff to Chesterfield need be warned.

Broadly, next month, temperatures will fall, and seasonal April showers can be expected (as if we hadn’t been having that already).

So some opportunity to work on your campaign tan, and the usual problem of trying to dodge showers and hailstones to get the soggy pieces of paper with Riso ink running down the page through the ever stiffer letterbox brushes. Bonne chance, activists.
