POSTED: Thursday 21 April, 1610BST
A tip from a colleague for getting rid of Labour canvassers. Just tell them: "I will give you my vote because I so admire Tony Blair's stand on Iraq." Evidently they back away in confusion, unwilling to offend the nutter.
Get rid of all canvassers this way. Simply take the "Vote (insert name of party here)" sticker out of the first electioneering bumf that falls through your letter box and stick in the window. The party who sent the poster will not bother you because they think they already have your vote. The others won't bother you because they don't want to waste their time. Result peace and quiet. Roll on 5 May when it's all over.

Although in response to Alan's comment it might in fact be a "split" household - not everyone in a house necessarily votes in the same way, even if there is only the poster of one party in the window. Any canvasser worth his or her salt would still knock on the door!
In response to Alan, you are simply doing what the canvassers want you to do, and advertising their party for them.
