Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very Heaven!
- William Wordsworth.
A KIND COMMENTATOR has suggested that I stand for Parliament. I thought it might be helpful to acquaint Bowalley Road's readers with the fact that I have already had a crack at that - back in 1990, when I stood for the NewLabour Party. A glance at the E9 Election Return for the seat of Dunedin North will tell you that I didn't exactly take the electorate by storm! So, "Thanks", to my anonymous supporter, but - "No Thanks". As they say, I've "Been There - Done That".
C TROTTER standing for NL received 1,127 votes (5.3%) of the 21,186 votes cast.
