The Lib Dems in 2009 had 969 votes to the Tories 2236. In 2013 it nose-dived to 294 probably because of their subservience in the coalition. 1479 was still well short of Clatworthy's total. It was a n improvement but it's now an irrelevance, it'll be forgotten. For all the Lib Dems talk and confidence prior to yesterday it'll be forgotten news. The Lib Dems pose no real threat to Tory ...

@From The Grave , yes it's telling how the dawlish mayor election thread was revived today. it's touching really how dedicated a spin doctor can be to their superior.

What if a year into office that candidate became a member of a party that you voted against in the election? What if a year into office they now believe in the principles and values of the party you oppose. Would you feel cheated? ...

thank you @leatash , guessing you didn't tell him to put it in recycling did you?

Empty promises mainly and UKIP was what you'd expect, hardly worth going but I thought the Labour candidate did well, even though I'm not sure where she sits on the Corbynite/Blairite spectrum. Still she's the best of a bad bunch for me. But I would write that wouldn't I.
