Also worked the counts in days gone by, we walked out one year because of the tantrums by the candidates. The Council booked in local bank cashiers like me to do the counts, and the candidates started complaining that the cashiers were sorting and counting the votes so quickly that they couldn’t keep up. For some reason the candidates thought we should be counting them out one at a time like the Post Office would to someone vulnerable. We were flicking the votes like cash (a counting method where you hold notes firmly tensioned in the left hand and “walk” the notes with the first three fingers of your right)

It was an absolute farce, the returning officer actually ordered the Police to stop us from leaving.

Never again.

That’s funny. At the London count we had to verify the number of papers one by one making a new pile, not flicking through them in the corner of the paper.

They should have hired council staff not bank clerks!
