He's Usually Such A Sweet Thing, You Know

It's a frenetic time for candidates right now, knocking on doors, arranging lifts to the polling station for elderly & housebound voters, anxiously scanning partially ticked-off lists.
My commiserations, therefore, to Joe Benton, Labour candidate & long-serving MP for Bootle, who had the tip of a finger bitten off by a dog as he pushed a leaflet through a letterbox earlier today ( ).
The injuries he sustained in the incident prevent him from attending tonight's count in the constituency.
Rumours that the dog is a reader of this blog ( ) have not yet been confirmed.
