    "Money is always available for branches and committees to request at any time, regardless of if we are running an election or not…" Is that so?  We asked the E.C. for financial aid. Nothing extravagant, just the portion of subs our members paid in. We got diddly squat.

    It would have been sorted if the branch had a different secretary. There is a 'problem' with every resolution I send on behalf of the branch. See our recent solutions reForm F. 'Proof' is always required. Where was the mtg held?, how many present?, send a copy of the minutes? Why was there an abstention? It is clear some members still resent the fact that I was allowed back and there is no trust.My presence is causing problems for the branch. I will explain more fully at our next meeting.Get a new secretary and the branch will get its money and its resolutions took seriously.

    the vote is not going to be the real measure of the campaign

    Actually I think we'll have more metrics than that. We can look at visits to the website, google search terms, and the amount of emails and information packs / free subs we give out..On the anecdotal side I've noticed a few facebook friends have been saying supportive things about the SPGB and I'm pretty sure this is because of the campaign rather than something I've said on there….

    Perhaps you can also look at the SOYMB blog stats for page-views and traffic sources etc and see how that behaved in the last couple of months that it has covered the election daily.The figures and where the visitors linked to it from will make more sense to you than to the computer inept blog committee

    Sad to see that despite appearances on the BBC in their election results we are lumped as Others, YET Class War, Cannabis Party and even the Moster Raving Loony Party get a specific mention…another protest i think
