LETTER: Lib Dems need a real opposition

May I thank and congratulate all those local residents who ‘Marched for Europe’ on Saturday in London.

I am proud that the Liberal Democrats were the only political party unified in their commitment and out with their placards.

We realise that, at the moment, Labour is besotted by its own issues, and the Conservatives riven between appeasing UKIP or their City bankrollers.

Locally and at a national level we desperately need a real opposition.

We work on, waiting patiently for the electorate’s call.

Chairman, Hastings and Rye Liberal Democrats
