Two Horse Race?

This picture is on the Campaign web site for Ben Abbotts, LibDem candidate for Bromley & Chislehurst.

Note the graph? Doesn’t tell you that the result (in seats) was Con – 49, Lib – 7, Lab – 4.

Paints a different picture doesn’t it? While trumpeting about being runners up they also neglect to mention that their result above was for a LOCAL election and in the General Election they were slapped into 3rd and didn’t even get 10,000 votes, and that was when Kennedy said they’d had their best year.

Don’t believe the nice men in sandals…

Hah I found myself laughing over my super noodles as soon as I saw that bar graph. They did the same thing to colleagues and me at the local elections.
