Door to door...
When canvassing for local government, Juno knocked on a door which was opened by a woman who said 'You must be here to see mother' and whisked her into the house. In the parlour was a coffin containing the woman's let mother. Unperturbed, Juno made some respectful noises before being offered a cup of tea. When she explained her actual reason for being there the woman swiped the tea back and exclaimed 'I am appalled by this behaviour! What IS the party coming to?'
In 1970 Juno was said to have resigned her council seat after performing high kicks in the council chamber wearing black stockings and false eyelashes and calling the mayor “Darling”.
