Scroll down for a superb letter from respected Labour activist Jane Roberts: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/apr/27/lib-dem-strategy-tactical-voting
She writes: “I have considerable respect for a number of national Lib Dem politicians and Nick Clegg does indeed have a compelling, straightforward style of talking, so important now for any party leader. But what sticks in my craw is the notion that the Lib Dems represent a new and different type of politics. In local elections, Lib Dems have long been the most shameless, unscrupulous campaigners of any mainstream party. Let’s not kid ourselves that the Lib Dems have the high moral ground.” Jane Roberts, Former Labour Leader of Camden Council
