Kentish Town resident and Lib Dem blogger Rocky Lorusso writes:
"I recently received through my door an astonishing first – a locally-focused Tory campaign leaflet.
There’s a by-election campaign underway in Kentish Town in another close fight between the Lib Dems and Labour, so the fact that the Tories made an effort to get something out this time is very novel indeed. However, their lack of campaigning experience in the area is noticable from the poor quality of their leaflet.
Most bizarrely of all is this odd section on Ed Miliband’s apparent betrayal of North London football..."
Rocky reproduces a snippet of the leaflet which says:
LOCAL BOY ED MILIBAND NAILS HIS COLOURS TO MAN UNITED. So much for Ed Miliband's links to North London. Which football team does he visit in his first trip after becoming Labour Leader? Manchester Utd. Maybe singing the Red Flag went to his head...
As Rocky points out, "I mean, that always come up on the doorstep. Definitely. All the time."
Liberal Democrat candidate Nick Russell knows the real issues much better, having previously been a councillor in the ward.
