A Lie Free Zone

We heard from some residents today that unfortunately, the Tory canvassers have had to fabricate a story about us Lib Dems joining forces with UKIP. We know most of them live in cloud cuckoo land, but really – is this the best they can think of?

It’s sad that the Tories have firstly called an unnecessary and costly by-election and then to try and smear the memory of Chris Black by telling voters that we have joined forces with UKIP. This is unequivocally untrue.

We will continue to campaign and take action on issues that affect our residents using the truth.

  • It seems that you don’t want the electors to know about the relationship between the Lib Dems and UKIP.

    Here are two facts

    UKIP have asked their supporters to vote Lib Dem in this election when one would normally think UKIP were closer to the Conservatives than to the Lib Dems.

    A meeting was held on 5th July 2017 between the councillors of Lib Dems, UKIP, Greens and Rochford District Residents although we don’t, of course, know what was being discussed. There may have been further such meetings of which we are unaware.

    • It may well be that nationally some parts of the conservative party are closer to UKIP on some issues but this is a local election and maybe they like many others are fed up with the way Tories have run the district with arrogance and no regard for the electorate Time for a change
