With the mainstream media picking up our story on the curious absence of Nick Clegg on Liberal Democrat election literature, Scrapbook’s attention has now been drawn to a leaflet which neglects to mention the party at all until the sixth page.
- “A local campaigner”
- “A Montgomeryshire Man”
- “Montgomeryshire’s Assembly Candidate”
- “A charismatic individual”
The leaflet — which is also notable for its vomit-inducing “lifestyle magazine” presentation — eventually makes fleeting acknowledgements of his association with the Liberal Democrats on, erm, pages 6 and 8.
In what must be close to another record, Williams includes 24 photos in his literature and in only one can you spot the hitherto ubiquitous orange “winning here” signs. No mention either of the former Montgomeryshire MP, Daily Sport columnist and current Mayor of London aspirant, Lembit Opik.
Perhaps their collective bout of insanity from 1997-2010 is a sore topic in northern Powys.
