And those going for MCA post in 2022. The cardinal secret is:
√NEVER try to appease friends in BARS. Chances are that they are not registered voters, or voters in your locality, or genuinely interested in politics or even believe in you.
√ In the bar, people are stupefied either by the drink or lust for more(when the mouth is willing, but the pocket is suffocated by harsh economic pangs) As such, they will cleverly cheer you on so that the beer tap doesn’t stop! They will fawn at you, for the love of free flowing drinks, and not honest appreciation of your candidacy.
√Historical data/evidence shows that people in bars have no political loyalty.
They are chameleonic!
They √ sway easily. √cross-carpet(defect) at the slightest opportunity and √ readily swallow propaganda/fake news including against you, √which their wives and or mothers may use against you.
√I didn’t say you stop drinking.
√Bars are intelligence assets; the finest places to independently and freely intercept intelligence about your opponents– a very useful strategic ingredient that will shape your next tactical move either on the information front or operational perspective.
The bar is not for vote fishing/ego massaging; its purely for FUN and INTELLIGENCE gathering.
I chose MCAs because wards are small, and bars provide an irresistible ready audience on a daily basis.
Thank me later.
