The Leigh Lib Dem double act

Yesterday I looked at the Conservatives’ leaflet in Leigh ward, and it’s underwhelming approach to its candidate and the facts. The Lib Dems also have a leaflet out in the ward, and naturally, I have a copy.

Peter Wexham has been a councillor for rather a long time. 1991, says the council website, though I haven’t trawled back through the election results to see if the voters have kicked him out at any point in those 24 years.

That Leigh alone of Lib Dem held wards has been impervious to the cliff-edge over which their vote has disappeared since 2010 might explain why they feel able to put out such a lacklustre leaflet out in the only ward they stand any possibility of a win in this year.
