When David tried to spark roses rebellion...

Pecket Well.

Your article in last week’s edition regarding the disgraced former Lancashire MP David Chaytor failed to mention his more serious crime of being a fifth columnist!

Your article should have been entitled “Chaytor the Traitor” after his failed attempt in 1990s to use the columns of your newspaper to re-start the Wars of the Roses by trying to persuade the good people of Todmorden to rise up in rebellion and change their allegience from Yorkshire to Lancashire !

He has now however received his just desserts, but was lucky then not have been dragged down the Calder Valley to be tried and hanged in York !
