JACKIE Petts has suggested that the photograph published in the Ely Standard on May 25 - which was taken by the paper's own photographer - of my wife and children was a Liberal Democrat PR ploy.
As a Council candidate representing the "nasty party" in 2005, she might be interested to know that our family always vote Tory, and that the sole aim of the photo (so far as Anna was concerned) was to provide a face for the campaign, and to show the Orchard in relation to the cathedral.
I am surprised that Mrs Petts does not recognise that the Orchard in question is actually quite prominent in the photo. But perhaps she does not know where it is? It would be of greater interest to the rest of us, however, to learn how the Tory support for the paving of cathedral land in Ely to accommodate cars coheres with the "Blue is the new Green" campaign promoted by David Cameron at the national level. Finally, may I say that I agree with her point about gracing the tourism brochure. My wife and children are indeed rather lovely, and preserving the attractiveness of Ely and the region is what we are fighting for.
