Somebody save the Lib Dems!
Tuesday, March 20, 2007
Concern is mounting for the well-being of the Welsh Liberal Democrat Party, missing for almost nine days.
They were last seen at the Richard Ley Development Centre in Swansea for their Spring Conference a week last Sunday. Police are said to be puzzled by a note left on their website, claiming that the conference is still the Lib Dems' 'top story'. They were alerted after a link to 'today's conference update' brought up information over a week old.
UK party leader, Sir Menzies Campbell, has issued an impassioned plea for information. He said: "Conferences are only supposed to last two or three days. Either the Welsh Lib Dems are still in Swansea, frantically finalising plans for a policy a second between now and the election, or something terrible has happened."
Conspiracy theories have already started to emerge, among them the suggestion that they've already teamed up with another party two months ahead of schedule.

Well locally (that's Montgomeryshire to you) the AM candidate has definitely gone to ground since he's been told by his local Party Chairman that he has to trounce the Tories on May 3rd if he's to save the preoccupied Lembit from deselection - tough choice I'd say!

Their policies are missing too. Remember the one policy a day pledge by German?

They're still trying to get out of the phonebox they held the conference in.
