Q is for Queen
No, we haven't had the honour to welcome Her Majesty to our corner of England, but it seems that our TV channels are providing us with weekend entertainment of several programmes on our wonderful Monarch- perhaps to remind us all that despite the madness of the general election campaign, we are the luckiest nation on earth, as we have Queen Elizabeth II leading our nation regardless of the colour of its government.
Q is for Quentin
Well, luck must be on my side! As the letter Q loomed into view yesterday, I was beginning to wonder if the day's events would proffer an obvious letter connection....
And then the inimitable Quentin Letts, the Daily Mail columnist & theatre critics called me, asking to come up and meet me to hear about how our election campaign is going. I am looking forward to hearing how he sees our chances up here in the northernmost reach of England. What will he make of our most beautiful landscape, our warm & welcoming residents, an area so desperately in need on infrastructure investment after 42 years of being out in the cold politically?
