So I've spent the last 2-3 weeks walking around delivering leaflets to the people of Neath & Swansea East in the hope that they will vote for me in the general election. Today I've discovered that I've broken myself in the groin/legs area and have given up leafleting for the duration of the campaign.

4 July 2024 - General Election

I've been laid up but not immobile for the last 3 days and this morning I shared my 'vote for Dai Richards' meme on FB which attracted the usual response from the FB public, about 80% for and 20% against. There was a rather negative response from the Trallwn Community Page Swansea and so I decided to work on my effectiveness when disagreeing with people.


It's important to boss your posts on Facebook and I like to make a point of trying to do so. One such comment linked Nigel Farage to a statement on the Brexit Bus saying he promised that leaving the EU would allow £350 million to be spent on the NHS.

Half way through the day I had the following message from one of my team.............. 

My children today in assembly had a mock election and candidates, my 11 year old Oscar went on stage! And told everyone I’m standing for reform” and to Vote Dai Richards and reform, “make Britain great again and Time for a change” the head teacher said he was so passionate and Convincing he was brilliant! They were all chanting vote ��️ for reform

That's pretty amazing I think

As a thank you for the care I've offered to the slow worm community, I've been bitten by one for the first time ever.
