Help us fight Labour lies says council chief
Senior local government Liberal Democrats are going on the offensive after voters in many parts of the country where local elections are taking place received leaflets from the Labour Party containing blatant lies about the Liberal Democrats.
The party is used to the usual strident propaganda put out by the opposition, but in this case senior Lib Dems believe it is time to fight back and rebut serious untruths.
The Leader of the Liberal Democrats on the Local Government Association and Leader of Portsmouth Council,
Cllr Gerald Vernon-Jackson, is determined to take on this negative campaigning.
“Have you seen the kind of lies and scares Labour are attacking local Liberal Democrat candidates with?” he asks.
“I didn’t know that we had scrapped free prescriptions for pensioners. Not to mention axing free TV licences and bus passes too!”
“That’s because it’s not true,” stresses Gerald.
“Millions of pensioners who use these services every day can verify this! Gerald is urging members to help the party counteract these underhand tactics.
“Our candidates need your help now to fight Labour’s lies and scares,” he says.
“Because this kind of campaigning should not be allowed to succeed. With your support, we can elect more local Liberal Democrat councillors to fight for communities across Britain."If you have local elections in your area, here’s how you can help today.
