Candidates need decent manners  

Dear Sir, — I was interested to read in this week’s Chronicle about Coun Derek Hough not standing for borough council in the forthcoming elections.
It was even more interesting to read the responses of Alsager election candidates Jo Dale from Labour and Sue Helliwell from the Conservatives. 
I presume the Chronicle rang them to get a response to Mr Hough’s retirement from the borough council. 
Usually this would call for some nice words about the person at the end of a long career on that council. 
I don’t know the man personally but I know what’s the standard etiquette.
