A TV crew were in Darlington today doing some filming in advance of tomorrow's referendum. After some standard campaign material (interviews with Alan Charlton and Stuart Hill) they asked for some shots of us surveying opinion in the town centre.
In a small way, it was heartening that the first two people we approached said they were definitely voting No, because of the cost of the extra layer of decision-making, and because it puts too much power in one person's hands.
I haven't the faintest idea what the result will be on Friday morning (and from some of the comments left by their sympathisers on this blog and the Liar, the Yes camp seem pretty cocky), but I do feel that the twin messages of the No campaign have been communicated effectively. The higher the turnout, the better our chances of success, I feel.
