To Cimla Common this morning, to be photographed with four other candidates for the county borough elections. We all held up bits of paper proclaiming a short slogan which hopefully distinguishes us in the eyes of the voter. I must confess I've forgotten what it is already, and will have to check when the photo appears in the press.
I've always had a traditionalist's suspicion of the value of such tableaux, but John Warman (pictured with photographer), who organises the publicity, has been re-elected for Cimla for yonks, so who am I to argue with success?
