Lib Dem Councillor in the stocks

Of course, I was really keen to do this myself, but Anne-Marie Curry got there first. Ever the gentleman, I acknowledged her right ahead of me to put her head in the stocks set up on Joseph Pease Place by the Darlington Market traders for Red Nose Day. Courteous to a fault, I took this photo. Sadly, I failed to get one with a wet sponge in her face, so you'll just have to imagine it.

The Mayor, Ian Hazeldine, and the Deputy Mayor, Jim Ruck, also took their turns in the stocks representing the Labour and Conservative Parties. They took a thorough soaking, I'm sorry to say. Well done to all three of them. I was devastated at having to get back to work before the water ran out.
