What lengths a woman will go for one red rose. Glenda Jackson has gone all they way to Benidorm - which, let's face it, is a long way from her Hampstead constituency - pursuing suncream-lathered young voters.

We should keep reminding them, whether on the ground, in the air, or on the beaches, that POLITICS MATTERS. Otherwise they might forget.
