I THINK in the modern parlance of Twitter this might be called something like #toryfail, a minor error unnecessarily amplified in the run up to the elections.
Perhaps anxious to show how much they care about Hampstead Town ward – a neighbourhood which will see Conservative and Liberal Democrats do battle in council voting on May 6 – sitting councillors Chris Knight and Kirsty Roberts delivered leaflets door-to-door showing their fighting spirit against a divisive planning application in Worsley Court this morning.
“We shall be writing to object to these proposals,” they say in the circular addressed to residents of Willow Road and Pilgrim’s Road.
Pilgrim’s Road? There hasn’t been a Pilgrim’s Road around here for, why, 50 years… I think you will find, Monsieur Knight, the road you wanted there was Pilgrim’s Lane. A small point, but one that hasn’t gone unnoticed in the street.
