I finally managed to get my hands on the Conservative Party’s leaflet for Bishops Lydeard today; they seem to have been a little thin on the ground. Having seen it I can see why. I think they must have been too embarassed to distribute it widely. Talk about hypocritical! There they are, our 3 Conservative candidates, pictured standing forlornly in front of “the threatened Bishops Lydeard library”. It is Conservative Councillors that closed it!! And what did we hear from our local Conservative Councillors a the time? Not a peep. No fight, no objection, because they have to toe their party line. That is why I am standing in this election, to stand up for our services and facilities and for what is best for our villages. And that is why I urge residents everywhere to vote Independent.
