John Hemming (on the verge of losing yet another election in Yardley) notes that the Tory helicopter which disturbed the skies of our fair city this Saturday with the banner asking us to 'Imagine five more years of Blair' is in fact a strong argument for voting Liberal Democrat.
I shall put this down to campaign exhaustion, or perhaps he has handed over the keyboard to his cat. If you don't want to see Labour in office, you need to vote Tory, because unless the polls are all wrong on a cataclysmic scale, the Liberal Democrats aren't about to threaten the Labour majority or gain power in their own right. The Tories may have lost the plot, but they haven't actually started advising people to vote Liberal Democrat.
But then, why should they?
All those Liberal Democrats elected in Birmingham last June are loyally supporting the Tories anyway.
