Luke I know you area strong supporter of candidates standing in all seats so give some postive ocmments when we stand for the first time ro were we are the only major party to gain on our past percentages - the swing between Tory and libDem are surely less important.

Good to see us having a go in Frampton and Holme, despite knowing our vote would be in the Raving Loony/TUSC ballpark.
