In a recent newspaper article the Lib Dem leader of all of Lancashire’s 4 Lib Dem councillors admits that the Lib Dems cannot win here in Lancashire. The leader, who is under intense pressure from the Conservatives in his West Craven seat, has said what we’ve all be thinking. The Lib Dems have seen 2 councillors leave their group in the last few months.
These defections followed the high profile defection on an MEP to the Conservatives and has also seen in the last few days another high profile defection to the Conservatives – this time a rising star who was selected to stand for Parliament. All stating that the Lib Dems have lost direction and that only David Cameron and the Conservatives can beat Labour.
