MR Ayto’s extraordinary comments in the Journal, December 9 where he says ‘the Conservatives could place a blue rosette on a sheep, stand it as a candidate, and it would be voted in’ hardly endears him to the voters of Grantham and Stamford.
I bow to his knowledge of sheep, a cud-chewing mammal, with a thick, woolly coat, kept for its wool or meat. I cannot recollect any sheep being elected or put up for a position in government.
Who shall we vote? Mr Boles or Baa Baa Black/White Sheep?
Personally, I shall vote for a candidate who engages with the locals, addresses our worries and delivers positive action in the community, not promises mostly which are “pie in the sky”. Merry Christmas to everyone.
