Nice to see someone

IF elections were decided on persistence, determination and unfailing optimism the winner would already have been declared in Dewsbury West.

A leaflet, a Christmas card and, more crucially, a personal door knock – how nice to see a candidate (Karen Rowling) who is genuinely interested in the view on the doorstep.

And from the Lib Dems and the Tories? Not a peep, as yet.

Maybe they realise that in the face of such strong competition they wouldn’t stand a chance – let’s hope so.

Mirfield’s loss should be very much Dewsbury’s gain.
