I hate the Focus ‘newspapers’ that the Liberal Democrats produce. They’re annoying, they’re badly written, they feature far too many photographs of people pointing at drain-covers, leaves, bags of rubbish and dog turds.
They have a really frustrating habit of saying one thing in one ward and completely the opposite in a neighbouring ward. There’s often a certain comedy value in their mad rantings, but mostly they just hack me off. As you might have noticed.
As a rule, they are nothing but propaganda sheets selling the almost-always non-existant virtues of the councillors/candidates/local Lib Dem team/resident mentallists. That’s why it surprises me to see the exception to that rule.
You can’t see the text too clearly. The second paragraph of this Focus leaflet is asking the voters of their ward whether they should leave the Liberal Democrat party after Clegg and Cameron hooking up.
The main reason we are writing to you is to ask what you would like us to do, seeing as the Liberal Democrats have chosen to form a coalition with the Conservatives, never considering the people in the deprived north.
I’d love to see what responses they received and what the local Labour and LibDem parties have to say about it.
