I have had leaflets from Labour and Lib Dem and the Lib Dem one seems to suggest that the Greens and Labour are nowhere between Conservatives and Lib Dem its very close. I `m a bit confused with it to be honest but I rather wish I had stood.
They tell me ( The Lib Dems ) that there is only one Conservative and he is from miles away and just making up the numbers in Priory ward.
Seemed a nice chap the Liberal , I am afraid he was wasting his time at our house but its not personal. Matt Kent seems a good fellow , for example but I would rather chew my own arm off than vote Green .
I think its important to be able to disagree in a civilised, even good humoured, way.( Noddy moment )

What the nice Lib Dem chap told you is half correct the Tories have given up on Lewes Town, no leaflets no posters as far as i have seen. But to suggest the Greens and Labour are nowhare is just not true,there has been a backlash against the Lib Dems and many people are not voting for them this time.

Steve's right, the Greens are in with quite a chance in Lewes this time out.

Lopster, if your name is on the register of electors then you will be able to vote. If you are inclined to, you could ring up the Electoral Services office tomorrow to see if you are on there. Just a thought though, did you definitely register to vote last year?

Am I alone ( as they say) in noticing new evidence that Lewes inhabits a different planet from the rest of the country.
With Britain abt to give a resounding 'No' to Nick Clegg's 'miserable little AV compromise' ( the latest poll puts the Nos 32% ahead) why have I seen about 30 'Yes' posters in Lewes and only one 'No'?
The same applies to elections: as a firm right-winger I resent only having the choice between a ludicrous lot of Leftie Lib Dems, Labour or Greens to vote for. Where are the Tories and UKIP FFS?
What is it with the Lewes air? Do all the DLFs hand in their brains when they get off the train and exchange them for a ball of mushy old copies of The Guardian? Or what?

Vulture sums up well in that the Lewes constituency as a whole, along with the town and Parish councils, are woefully inadequate at choosing quality candidates for any election. They give the clear impression that they have given up in their attempts to win back the seats.

Which must be why Barcombe has a ten year old running as Tory candidate (who bills herself a "libertarian").
