With the elections looming, it reminds me of the 1950 General Election. All us kids in the village dressed our bikes up with crepe paper and rode around the village shouting Vote for ...!
Many kids had red crepe on their bikes and were shouting Vote Labour. Wanting to be different, I dressed my bike in blue crepe paper and also had a couple of cow bells strapped to my handlebars so that they clanked whilst I was riding and I was shouting Vote Conservative.
Of course, none of us really had the slightest interest in politics at the age of ten. However, one of the village women dragged me off my bike and tore the blue ribbons from it. We had a debate in school a few days later and I stood up and said that, if that was the type of person that voted Labour, then I would always vote Conservative. Though, since then, I have been known to vote for all the top three at various times.
