Liberal Democrats finding it hard to acclimatise to election campaigning within government

As a police van was demolished in front of our eyes on the television screens this week, what remains of the Liberal Democrat ‘machine’ was distributing the letter below to thousands of homes in targeted areas of the Oldham East and Saddleworth area.

To write, underlined, and in bold type, the words “too many people today won’t stand up for what they believe in” on a Lib Dem leaflet during this of all weeks, is at best, unwise.

It will inevitably focus attention on what the self-described Lib Dem candidate in Oldham said during the general election and what his government are doing now.

Given the circumstances, it seems a masochistic strategy.
