From the back pages, May 20: England’s Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson ‘as good as I’ve seen’ – Cook
Alastair Cook’s first Test on home soil as England captain ended in a comfortable win, although it took an hour of supremely destructive fast bowling from Stuart Broad and James Anderson to lend the start of the Ashes summer something resembling a sense of decisive momentum. “We thought that would be a pretty tough chase,” Cook said after England’s 170-run victory. “We knew if we put the ball in the right areas we could cause damage. But there’s still a lot of nerves in there when you walk in in the morning.” (The Guardian)

Referring to the letter by Cllr Brenda Smith in your May 8 edition I have the following observations:
I noticed some rather odd outcomesin the county council elections.
There’s a political cartoon from an old newspaper I came across recently. A politician is out knocking doors, in preparation he is working through arguments in his head about the big party political issues of the day. But, when the door finally opens, he is instead confronted with a barrage of local issues around bin collections and dog mess. Clearly politicians don’t get to decide what matters locally, voters do.
