Sir: Your report (8 May) on Bernard Walsh failing to register a single vote in the recent Liverpool council elections, might be a first in local government, but it is not unique in British politics.William Edwards stood in the 1841 general election at Monmouth as a Chartist and gained nil votes. He was described as someone who "held very advance principles". However, he had neither an effective spin-doctor nor a vote, I presume.
