POLITICS: Why not have a go yourself?

Have your say

In reply to Roy Sells’ letter, I agree. As a 69-year-old pensioner conducting a ‘one-man’ campaign, I tried my best.

If I have not achieved the high standards of electioneering that he seems to require, well, Roy, why don’t you have a go?

My call, or, rather wish, for younger and better candidates to stand is purely self referential.

At least my efforts have pleased 583 voters in Pinchbeck and Surfleet. I thank them wholeheartedly.

Why did I run? I believe there is a duty to try to make a difference if you truly believe in democracy.
