It’s incredible to learn that some Liberal Democrat council candidates are reluctant to promote the achievements of the party in Government. “Keep it local,” they argue. “Don’t mention the Coalition or the cuts.”
Jo Grimond, the former Liberal Party leader, said in 1963 that he would march his troops to the sound of gunfire. If he’d have looked behind when this lot were in his battalion he’d have found that at the first whiff of political smoke they had all scarpered. What a bunch of wimps!
