Lib Dem's Two Horse Race is a Nag


Well, we had it pounded into us by the local Lib Dems that the election was a two-horse race beteween them and Labour. They kept using a graph from 2005.
However, the reality was the Conservatives revving up their campaign to recover and by 2009 actually overtaking Labour in the popular vote... something that was repeated in this year's parliamentary result (Well Done Nick!).
Despite this, the Lib Dems continued to peddle their misleading bar charts. If the new MP for the seat wants to restore trust to our political system I suggest he starts by a bit of honesty in his party's campaigning.
