Given the disastrous result for the Lib Dems in the Rochester & Strood by-election, it was going to be a brave soul that would be willing to become the candidate for the upcoming general election.
Happily though, the party have selected their candidate. Step forward, Prue Bray!
Not being familiar with this particular local Lib Dem, we decided to find out a little bit more about her. It didn’t take long to notice this:
It’s not entirely uncommon for candidates to be brought in from outside the constituency, and there should be no illusions that the Lib Dems are the only party to partake in this.
Still, the Medway Lib Dems are perhaps in a worse state than thought if they have to bus in a candidate 60 miles to stand in a seat they’ll never win.
