That was the wisdom, and a rule I still thought applied — until Labour, the party that came third in my home town at the last election, popped up on my doorstep bearing pamphlets.
Now, in High Wycombe, where the Tory MP Steve Baker is defending a safe 9, majority, I find campaigners on my step and activists swarming like bees around the market. So why on earth is Labour candidate David Williams bothering to trudge up and down our steep hills to talk to electors? I found him handing out leaflets in the market one Saturday afternoon and started grilling him while clutching my groceries.
Every party pretends every seat is worth the effort, but with only weeks to go until polling day, most send their activists to those seats which really could change hands. Things have changed in Wycombe over the past five years, Williams, a barrister, insisted. The Lib Dem vote has collapsed, and Ukip, who have a strong presence in Buckinghamshire, are chipping away at the Tories.
Wycombe includes some very deprived areas, and a large ethnic-minority population who are more likely to be suspicious of the Conservatives and back Labour. The point of this seemingly pointless campaign is to build Labour support in a traditionally Tory town for future elections, not to spring a surprise unseating this time around.
One voter was called three times in one day by the Conservative Party. Sometimes parties end up winning those decapitation campaigns — and this could happen in South Thanet, where both Labour and the Tories are battling to stop Nigel Farage from reaching Parliament.

What did you think of the movie? Step 2 of 2 How did you buy your ticket? Another remote possibility is a player like Libor Hajek who has had difficulty cracking the Rangers lineup. So when it comes to and it is time for Seattle to pick a player from the Rangers, it is my best guess that Brett Howden will be wearing a Kraken or Sasquatch jersey that season.
