Shame on the Lib Dems

Jackie Ashley (27 August) claims that "as Labour moves, crab-wise, ever further to the right . . . a strong opposition of the left will emerge". She goes on to claim, bizarrely, that it is the Lib Dems who will provide this. Are these the same Lib Dems who are shamefully, cynically and opportunistically propping up a frighteningly right-wing Tory county council here in Cumbria?
