It’s Wednesday 17th February and for me, like so many other Lib Dem activists, another day of delivering leaflets and knocking on doors (plus a Council meeting in the evening).

Lib Dem voters are the kinkiest
If it’s instant gratification you’re after, Labour voters are the place to go. One in 20 (five per cent) say that they expect to have sex on the first date, compared to three per cent of Lib Dems and a meagre two per cent of the frosty Conservatives. Going out with a Liberal Democrat could be a frustrating experience: one-third (33 per cent) will make you wait until the fifth date or – if you can imagine such a torment – even longer.
Forget the policies, ignore the personalities – this is how elections should be decided.
