It is very sad to see the LibDems continuing to mislead Norwich voters at every opportunity – in spite of the fact that their candidate claimed that he would run a ‘Clean Campaign’, following the Green Party’s initiative of a Clean Campaign Pledge in Norwich South.
In their latest leaflet, the LibDems try their hardest to pull the wool over voters’ eyes about what happened in last year’s elections. They fail to point out that I (as the Green Party candidate) came within just 1% of winning a seat in the European Parliament, and was the runner-up – and that if it hadn’t have been for LibDem lies about me being ‘out of the race’, I could very easily have been elected.
During the Norwich North byelection, they took some words of mine from THE TIMES and printed leaflets saying that those words proved that I was admitting that I could not win that byelection. In their latest leaflet in this election, they claim that I insisted during that campaign that I COULD win the byelection. Make your mind up, LibDems – you can’t have it both ways! (Maybe you think you can, because you are so used to sitting on fences… 😉
Once, long ago, I was a LibDem, for my sins… Every time one of their manipulative pieces of paper comes through my door, I thank my stars that I’m now with the Green Party, instead. And that the Green Party may now be poised on the edge of a famous victory, here in Norwich South. That’s certainly how the posters look, across the constituency – overwhelmingly Green, with few LibDem posters in most parts of the city.
In last year’s Norwich North byelection, the LibDem vote fell substantially – while the Green Party vote more than tripled. Norwich South is our stronghold, where we outnumber LibDem Councillors two to one (ALL the Green Norwich City Councillors are in Norwich South). In Norwich South, if voters vote for what they want, they will get a Green MP: brilliant local man and experienced Councillor Adrian Ramsay.
But you won’t find any of that information on LibDem leaflets!
