The Mayoress of Louth, Jill Makinson-Sanders, has been getting some flak for dressing up as a sausage to greet the Olympic Torch relay when it passed through the town. Some thought it made the town a laughing stock. Others thought the sausage looked too phallic for comfort. Rebuffing calls to resign, Jill defended her sausage by saying she wanted to publicize sausage-making in Louth. I'd never heard of the place, let alone knew it was big in bangers. So good for her. I wish my local Mayor was as enterprising. Jill has put Louth on the map. It's in Lincolnshire (CLICK).
