There is probably no more devoted fan of Mr. G.Ward than Mr. P. Ells. Make a remark even vaguely contentious concerning Mr. G. Ward and there is Mr. P. Ells writing letters to the Register – which itself is a devoted fan of Mr. G.Ward.
A mild letter complaining about lack of consultation in relation to snoop cameras in Junction Street ended with the remark that the writer almost didn’t recognise Ward with his hat and sunnies. Like an Exocet missile back in comes a turgid hymn of praise of Mr. G. Ward which begins “IT IS with disgust and distain that I respond”
“Disgust and distain”? What aroused his disgust and distain apparently was the headline on the letter – but that was put in by the Register. Did he not know that? Doesn’t the Register put headlines in Mr. P. Ells praisy prosy efforts? It seems he does not know this.
Mr. P. Ells is young. A Young Liberal in fact. He will surely apologise for such a misguided missive. In fact, I am sure that Mr. G. Ward will so instruct him.
