More council seats than wards up for election this week

October 27, 2017 12:50 PM

Seven seats up for election in this week's by-elections although they only span six wards due to one double vacancy. Five of those six wards (and five of those seven vacancies) have Liberal Democrat candidates.

This regular pattern over the last few weeks of most but not quite 100% of by-elections being contested by the Liberal Democrats reinforces my view that if the party really put its mind to taking fighting every by-election seriously (and it's worth doing even if you have no chance of winning) then it could. The occasional exhortation isn't enough; it should be a built-in part of the internal communications of all parts of the party.
