    Lets hope none of them hold their breath. I can’t wait for the election. My first question to the candidate with the guts to knock at my door. Which promises are you prepared to ditch for a place in Government this time… or do you REALLY mean it this time.? And to think they even got me delivering leaflets for them at the last election because I believed Clegg.
    We all remember Clegg’s video from the last election. Unfortunately plenty of other people believed him as well, but never again.

    North Wiltshire (11 th October )

  • It’s worth noting that these dates are the closing dates for applications, not when the selections will actually take place. The chosen candidate s in these seats might not be known for some time.
