Vote for real change in Norfolk - The UK General Election is on !
In North Norfolk we have a fine example of everything a good MP should be with Lib Dem MP being an MP that people of all parties admire. For me personally he has been an inspiration and we desperately need more MPs like him, untainted and free of any involvement in the expenses scandals and standing up for local people in a way that gives people confidences in politics.
In Broadland, we have Lib Dem candidate Dan Roper, who inherits a large chunk of Lib Dem North Norfolk and who, on the back of by-election wins in formerly safe Tory seats in Wroxham and Taverham in recent months, now has a real chance of causing an upset. Hardly anyone locally knows who the Tory MP is and this area definitely needs an MP in the Norman Lamb mould and Dan Roper is that man.
The other hot prospect for the Lib Dems is Norwich South. Now the press will want to make a story here and will relentlessly talk up the Green's chances, as they did in the Norwich North by-election (where they came 5th), but the fact is that the Lib Dems jumped up from 3rd to a close second last time and in Simon Wright (who I was councillor with in Fakenham North) who also worked for Norman Lamb in North Norfolk, Norwich South have a genuine champion, someone who has had a job in the real world, someone who lives locally, is Norfolk through and through and really cares about the area.
In Norwich South at the last General Election seats where the Green's were embedded at a local level clearly voted on national issues in the General Election vote and it seems clear that Green's know that a vote for the Greens at the general election would be a wasted vote and will let Labour back in.
Across Norfolk, we can be the vanguard for change, we can offer a new type of politics, a real fresh start and not a return to the old Tory ways that saw us suffer so much in the past.
So on May 6th vote for real change. Vote Lib Dem
P.S. I should add that there are other great Lib Dems standing across Norfolk, and I ought to give mention to Jacky Howe in South Norfolk who was elected in Fakenham as a councillor in 2003 when I was her agent, so I certainly wish her lots of luck too. The Lib Dems start in a clear second place in South Norfolk and a Labour vote there will be a wasted vote.
