The resignation of a local representative in Lancashire brings the total number of Liberal Democrat councillors to have quit the party to more than 50 since the general election.
Cllr Abdul Rehman sits on Blackburn with Darwen Council, the 17th most deprived borough in the country which has suffered the 5th highest level of government cuts.
“That is simply not fair and is a betrayal of everything that the Liberal Democrats have previously stood for … Over the last few months it has been difficult not to feel embarrassed by the long list of Liberal Democrat broken promises but the severity and unfairness of the government cuts programme is, for me, the final straw.”
Research by Political Scrapbook makes him at least the 51st Liberal Democrat councillor to have quit the party in disgust at the unholy alliance with the Conservatives.
But we’re sure to have missed some.
