Those who have received my latest leaflet will know that two former political ‘opponents’ are backing the Conservatives on Thursday.  As far as I know, this is unprecedented in Fylde.

John Bennett, a respected Independent Councillor in Kirkham has stated that he’s backing the Conservatives for the County elections as the only way to send a message to Gordon Brown.

Norman Abram, until recently the Deputy Leader of Lancashire’s Liberal Democrats, is also backing us to win.  The Lib Dems couldn’t find candidates for half of Lancashire, including here in Fylde East.
