A vote for the BNP is a vote for the Liberal Democrats

Not apparently the case in Calderdale, for a report by FibDems....

Now here's what happens when you post a quick couple of lines and miss the date. This story did the rounds a few weeks back and had the Lib Dems across the web jumping all over everyone. I didn't write about it then because I'd seen the controversy and wasn't happy with the story.
Indeed, the Lib Dem group leader on the council stated that none of his people had canvassed support from the BNP for their no confidence motion. As a matter of interest, when the vote was taken, both BNP councillors were out of the chamber and as the Labour councillors voted with the Tories, the motion fell. I didn't check the date on FibDem's report and missed that it was the same press story that had triggered the initial firestorm. Usual apologies all round and I'll wipe the egg off my face.

PH, this report was refuted weeks ago. See this thread, after which you might want to make a correction.
