Election day in the UK

Always General Elections remind me of my childhood. My father John Mitchard used to stand for parliament back in the day for Labour - here we are in 64 I think when he stood in North Devon. I have pretty happy memories of these old style elections when they used to have debates in town halls and PA speakers on top of cars. I remember one time when my Dad and his crew went out meeting the people leaving me alone in the car - I got hold of the mic and did the Batman theme very loud which caused them to run back to the car in a panic. I also stuck my tongue out in a family portrait like this one and it got used in the local paper. Good times.
