No wonder there were voters left outside when the doors closed at 10.00pm.

It's the real human face on politicians rather than the sound bite moments that attract such disdainMike Cardy caught the spirit of the candidate on the soap box, although this is Paddy Ashdown it could be any real on the front line politicain anywhere in the democratic world!
