David Howarth 2%
Chris Mullin 2%
I appreciate that the results do not make happy reading for visitors to this site and the results of online polls cannot be taken too seriously, but please don’t dismiss this competition just yet.

This is our take on it, and naturally we would like to focus on the positives. We would also like to hear your views though and would welcome any feedback.
Finally, Many Thanks to Lib Dem Voice for giving us a ‘voice’ and to anyone who took the time to read what I’ve been saying here or to visit our website.
