Yes, despite Mrs Mayhem the PM categorically stating that she would not call a general election – she has! I honestly don’t know how these Conservatives can expect anyone to believe them as they twist, turn, u-turn and squirm. They give us all a bad name.
I haven’t heard for sure whether Tory Sir Eric Pickles will seek another five years as our MP but I do hear that Chelmsford MP Sir Simon Burns is standing down. That’s a relief as, due to the nonsense he used to talk when he was in the Department of Health, I nearly put my foot through the telly about a hundred times.
We Liberal Democrats are resolutely clear on what we stand for in this general election and I stand right there, at the shoulder of my friend Tim Farron MP, our leader.
As for our candidate, we are just finalising a few legalities and he – or she – will be announced within the next few days…Leave a comment
