Ben Abbotts' Bit of Spin Backfires

Click on Guido HERE and Jaj HERE to see why Ben Abbotts isn't worth a vote in Bromley & Chislehurst. Sickening stuff.

"Sickening stuff"? Really? Or just usual by-election tittle tattle.

'All as bad as each other' is the expression that springs to mind.

"Sickening stuff" Nice to see, that Iain Dale never descends to such personal attacks of which he accused Lib Dems here.

Iain Dale said...

anonymous, if that's the best you can do. dear oh dear. You reckon that's a personal attack? ROFL.

Kate said...

We know that, despite their public face, the Lib Dems are the dirtiest of political fighters, but this is definitely the worst example I've seen!

What's the betting that someone from the local Lib Dem HQ has been sent round with a bottle of bleach to try & remove the graffiti before the national media get onto this story!?

I think sickening stuff is a bit extreme. But it is nice to see the Lib Dems caught out for once.

Thankfully our campaign has run like clockwork with the World Cup leaflet and the questions over eligibility....

This is one campaign that I don't think anyone will come out of well. No matter who wins.

Just when you think its just not possible to hate them any more, the Lib Dems rise to the challenge yet again! Now is the time for all decent people to rise up and say no more of your ridiculous bar charts, no more tedious brain dead focuses, no more double standards,
no more lying here. Please just do something useful with your lives. Take up train spotting again.

it is blatantly misleading voters in this. pathetic. just a shame that this has only been found out at last minute but who know maybe if there is another by-election....

Mary will be pleased that you are linking to a female blogger :D

Louise, Lib Dems "caught out for once"?? Now they get caught in the crossfire all the time, because everyone is on their case.

By the way, anonymous 2.06, as you well know, its standard Lib Dem practise to scream foul play, because everyone is so busy looking out for what the Labour/Conservative candidate did wrong, they miss the Lib Dems dishing it out, or rather they used to miss it...

Libs Dems are scum but Tories, get over it. In Lambeth, we Labourites wiped the floor with them by campaighing hard on positive messages. Well, actually I sat on my arse watching Big Brother - but you get my point.

It says over on Guido's that he didn't work in the orphanage in Madras at all. He just went to see his girlfriend who worked there.

It only reminds me of a certain Conservative candidate in South Dorset...

Jimbo Jones said...

Er jimthechimp....are positive messages accusing lib dems of wanting to legalise crack cocaine and saying that they hadnt asbo'd enough kids unlike Labour Camdem?

I can assure everyone that as of this morning the graffiti was still there but on JAJ's latest blog a Bromley councillor has offered to go and make sure it is cleaned up!

As of this morning (July 1st) the graffiti is still in place but a visit to the comments on JAJ's latest blog show that a councillor has offered to ensure that it will be removed!
