And another political letter in the Ely Weekly News - we both had a really good laugh at this one!

"Vision needed as region grows

It was with great interest that I read in the Weekly News of the Wicken Fen Vision and I am somewhat surprised to opposition to the project ('Wicken Fen Vision vital to help climate - February 11).

The creation of new wetlands will lead to a number of benefits, including the promotion of bio-diversity, absorbing CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

With the A14 corridor likely to develop with new homes and businesses, the creation of green infrastructure where people can walk and ride bikes or horses is important to the wellbeing of the community.

The new nature reserve will also act as another venue for tourists to come to as they enjoy the historic delights of Ely and other activities in the local area.

John Cowan
Labour Parliamentary Candidate for South East Cambridgeshire
Goodwin House
William Snaith Road

This letter is transcribed as it appeared. Anybody else spot the other 'deliberate' mistake?

I have already written to the Ely Weekly News, as follows:

"Dear Editor,

I see that John Cowan, the Labour Parliamentary Candidate for South East Cambridgeshire, has started to take an interest in local concerns. I have no problem with any Johnny-come-latelies. After all, it's a free country - to date - but it might be an idea if Mr Cowan were to realise that his office is in Willie Snaith Road, Newmarket, not 'William Snaith Road.' I know this, of course, not only because I use the road regularly, but also because Willie Snaith, MBE, the famous former jockey of Newmarket, is married to Silvia (née Jones), my wife's cousin.

Yours sincerely,

Geoffrey Woollard.
Independent Parliamentary Candidate for South East Cambridgeshire."
