Les May on Cyril Smith's Lucrative Smile!

WHEN it was published last April, 'Smile for the Camera'by Simon Danczuk and Matthew Baker was favourably reviewed by most of the mainstream media. But a more forensic reading suggests that it raises more questions than it answers. So last October I wrote to Mr Danczuk for clarification. I'm still waiting for an answer. Some of the questions raised by the book are discussed in 'The Lucrative Smile of Cyril Smith' which can be found in the new issue of Northern Voices' out now:  copies of N.V.15 are already on sale on Ashton Market; at the Touchstones Museum; at Gallery Ten on Bailie Street in  Rochdale; and at the Colin Jellicoe Gallery in Manchester. It is expected to be in the other Rochdale outlets, the Salford outlets and the Burnley outlets early next week.
