Fantasia repeated: Out of Focus 5

August 29, 2011

Before the local election of 2010 we had occasion to comment on a Focus leaflet in which the then Lib Dem candidates claimed we had neglected the ward and they had been so frightfully active over so many years.

Marvellous to relate, they think you’ve forgotten so they’re at it again. Some of them were out today delivering their slightly rehashed version of the same old thing.

As they have repeated their allegation, we have pleasure in repeating our comment on it:

The latest fantasy to emanate from the ‘Surbiton Hill ‘Focus’ team’ (founded 2010) apparently lays out how these three invisible persons have ‘a record of achievement’ for the people of Surbiton Hill stretching back years.

This is standard Lib Dem nonsense, which has brought them dividends over the years because some people are gullible enough to believe it. The architect of this is undoubtedy the ‘Team’s’ agent, a former Councillor (for Grove Ward I think) and Leader of the Council, no less.  And he gets it from the Liberal Democrat campaign document, ‘Effective Opposition’, produced by the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors.

On page 21 it says:

Be wicked, act shamelessly, stir endlessly.

On page 23, it says:

Don’t be afraid to exaggerate. For example, responses to surveys and petitions are always ‘massive’. If a council is doing something badly public expressions are always of ‘outrage’.”

And on page 4, it states:

Positive campaigning will NOT be enough to win control of the council.”

We have said it before, the Lib Dems are having a laugh at the voters of Surbiton Hill. It’s time to show them where they get off.

    “Be wicked, act shamelessly, stir endlessly” so sums up their campaign thus far!

    Their record of achievement:

    * One’s resigned.

    * One’s moved out of the borough.

    They’re good at self-promotion though.
