I can confirm that our Lib Dem candidate, Ed Fordham, is a thoroughly nice chap. No typical party apparatchik either. Of course, the same can also be said for out Labour candidate, Glenda Jackson. It’s a tough choice, but these two are the only choice. The Tories, from what I can tell, aren’t worth a look-in. But I’ve seen no campaign material from any party other than the Lib Dems.
But our Glenda has the significant disadvantage of having Blair as her party leader…
I will at this juncture declare an interest. I now owe Ed Fordham a pint. But I plan to get him one back at some point.
Make your own decision, but – to paraphrase that old dude from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – choose wisely. Don’t vote in fear – as the Labour party would have you do with their scare stories of a Conservative win – vote for someone with whom you agree and who is worthy not just of your respect, but of your vote and your voice/
