You Know You Are A Bit Over-Involved In The Labour Party When...

There's nothing so rewarding as helping electors to cast their votes

  1. Colleagues tell you your front room is an ideal size in which to erect trestle tables on which they can help their constituents by completing declarations of identity, inserting these and envelope As into envelope Bs and ensuring that these are delivered to the Town Hall by due deadline.

  2. You find yourself genuinely believing that your party is going to win the next General Election.

  3. You are woken at 6 a.m. by the sound of Deputy Assistant Commissioner John Yates and his team breaking down your front door.
