Please let it be true
News reaches West Kent Towers that one of our local members, selected to fight a "challenging" Labour seat many miles from Kent, was campaigning in the constituency with her husband. After a hard morning's leaflet delivery they entered a remote local pub for a livener. The candidate wisely ordered a half of larger "and what would you like darling...?" Mr Candidate (who is not at all political) scanned the bar shelves. "Do you have any Hendricks?" he asked hopefully. The barman fixed them with a suspicious stare; "I'm not sure what's on the juke box, you'll have to check."
