UKIP candidates outnumber Lib Dems in Plymouth elections

Graham Smith | 12:55 UK time, Sunday, 8 April 2012

Candidates are one thing; elected councillors quite another. But it's interesting that the Statement of Persons Nominated for the Plymouth City Council elections, due to be published on Tuesday, shows the UK Independence Party fielding a full slate. Nine of the 19 contested Plymouth wards have no Lib Dem entry. The Conservative and Labour parties also have candidates in every ward, the Greens are represented in five, Trade Unionists & Socialists Against Cuts and Vivamus one each.

    I cannot comprehend voting for lib dems, as far as I can see it is a wasted vote for a foolish party who record whilst within the coalition is somewhere between misguided & poor.
    Mr Cable on his own would persuade me not to vote Lib dem !
