These figures, as presented, are not "an interesting insight into what could happen at next year's general election" because they do not take into account the number of seats contested.

How utterly ridiculous.

The standard allowance for a city councillor is less than £4k p/a. For this, the councillors give up their own time and fit in council business around their working lives. They will take inordinate amounts of stick from people who've never engaged much in the democratic process themselves, and will get little credit for things they do to help benefit the community.

Having helped a political campaign myself, the reason you might not have had a leaflet is because many blocks of flats have secure doors, and no-one but the residents and postmen have access. There is the 'trades' button of course, but this is only available at set times of the day.
