Liberal Democrat leaflets in disguise
Nick Clegg - and Chris Davies MEP - are keen that Liberal Democrats should be actively campaigning in these elections. I wonder what they would make of these leaflets I have picked up from two wards in Liverpool published by incumbent LibDem councillor candidates?
Coloured red, rather than the traditional orange/yellow, one of them does not use the logo, or mention the party at all, where the other is a more traditional focus but still in red.
What would the motivation be?
To avoid getting an ear-bashing during delivery of the literature?
To try to give it a chance of being read before it goes in the recycling bin?
To give the impression that these are the Labour candidates?
Why stand for a party that you are not proud of?
It is bemusing isn't it.
