Mayor of Deal Deryck Murray leaves Labour and joins Liberal Democrats

Deryck Murray joins Lib Dems

Good news from Kent as the Mayor of the Town, Cllr Deryck Murray resigns from Labour and joins the Liberal Democrats.

Cllr Murray said:

I regard the Liberal Democrats as the sensible party with a conscience.  Family tradition kept me in Labour.  But we must look to the future and I think the Liberal Democrats are the progressive force that can make a difference locally and nationally.”

My political hero is Vince Cable.  He always makes sense and answers questions.  He listens patiently and wins the argument.”

The Liberal Democrats have had a fabulous influence on this government and made it more compassionate and humane.”

Locally neither Labour nor the Conservatives can make a difference.  Some Labour councillors rarely read the papers for council meetings.  Local Conservatives waste time and public money making silly complaints that aren’t upheld.”

The local Liberal Democrats have impressive, capable people and our town is worse off for not having more of them on the council.  I hope they will be on the council soon.
