Candidates face icy reception

Sir -- Do you know, the weather is still cold and the candidates will have to keep their long-johns on to keep warm. Will their posters get any attention? After all, the 'Calendar Girls' are everywhere -- in your face, making money for charity!

The candidates might be more welcome 'pressing the flesh' at our doors than arriving with 'Big Promises'. If they don't get frost-bite in their unmentionables!
