Michael Ward: Labour MP who won the highly marginal Peterborough seat in 1974 and briefly defected to the SDP
Tuesday 31 March 2009
After epic struggles, Michael Ward was finally elected to the key marginal seat of Peterborough in October 1974, by 21,820 votes to the Conservative Harmar Nicholls' 19,972 votes. In 1966, after no less than seven recounts and eight and a half nail-biting hours following the opening of the ballot boxes, Ward had lost to Nicholls by 23,941 to 23,944. It was a majority of precisely three votes.

I am in a dreadful situation. I've decided that my marriage of five years was a mistake. I want to get a divorce – but my wife says that if we start a family, everything will be all right. My mother, whom I love very much, is vehemently against a divorce. She adores my wife and treats her like the daughter she never had. She also wants grandchildren, and says if I get a divorce she won't speak to me again. What can I do?
Yours sincerely, Matt
