Nobody else has entered the lists and the most sensible course for the Minister would be to keep quiet- He's a polit- ician and knows when he's on a bad wicket. As you have seen from the letter I sent you,Yorkshire has said no,v. politely. Unless you find this cutting of special interest perhaps you wd return it. I don't intend to spend much time writing letters to Editors,but I can't see that it does any harm now and then. I thihk you are due for xx such a letter in B and B: “Roll up,roll up,for the barefist fight between Colin Wilson,the Cornish xxxxxxx champion ... and,on my right, the Sussex champion,Derek Stanford... Take your places,gentlemen...." Amused to see the Wolverhampton wonder turning into Ulster's new Carson. Ireland has usually been a graveyard for English politicians. One great exception was Willie Whitelaw. But "Knocker" will be another cup of tea Love to you both - Robert Text
