SPEAKING of the Liberal Democrat tilt at Hampstead and Kilburn, the party’s famous leaflet factory has fired out another despatch. This time it’s a personal letter to voters from the party leader himself, Nick Clegg. “We need real change and we need it now. Here in Hampstead and Kilburn, only the Lib Dems can deliver that change,” he tells us.
But have a squint at the postcode. NW5? Kentish Town? Last time I looked at the constituency boundaries, people in Ryland Road don’t have the chance to vote anybody in Hampstead and Kilburn. They. Don’t. Live. There!
Holborn and St Pancras candidate Jo Shaw must be wondering why Clegg isn’t using letters like this to tell people in Kentish Town about her constituency and her chances of unseating Frank Dobson.
