Bill hits those boundaries for six!

Hmm - this could get interesting.
In June the Daily Mail reported that the Tory party were going to sacrifice Bill Wiggin MP in the forthcoming boundary shuffle as he has become an embarrassment.
This appears to be coming true and Mr Wiggin would have no chance in the new Ludlow & Leominster constituency against Ludlow's popular Phillip Dunne, who has never had to pay back thousands of wrongly claimed expenses and apologise publicly to the House of Commons.
So this desperate attempt to whip up a campaign to save Mr Wiggin's seat has been dropping through letterboxes.
Trouble is, local politician Phillipa Roberts is claiming on her FaceBook page that she received this inside a House of Commons envelope with a covering letter by Mr Wiggin. Ms Roberts is Labour but she was a candidate at the last general election & it's hard to believe she's making this up.
This doesn't sound like the sort of thing the rules would allow, does it?
I'm back in Leo this weekend: will check out how many of these letters have been delivered...
