Imitation the greatest form of flattery

Since my departure from the lib dems in 2000 I have rarely had the chance to read Lib Dem news.

However a friend sent me a clipping from a recent edition. It is an article on local government by-elections written by ALDC political officer John Bridges the key paragraph reads...

"In Llandrillo and Rhos we failed to stand a candidate despite a resectable 20% base in 2004. Here Plaid applied some of our methods jumping from 10% to win with 47%. Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery but it still needs to be confronted."

John is a good guy and a very hard working councillor in manchester he is also excellent company. Sadly he has not responded to my email in which I asked him what Lib dem methods did we miss in Llandrillo yn Rhos? :)

On a more serious note. The lib dems are in a state of utter collapse in Conwy once one of their strongholds. They now have just 3 councillors down from 13 prior to 2004.This perhaps explains their failure to stand a candidate in a ward they had a councillor in up till 2004.
