Liberal Democrats riding high ...

Following the announcement of the coalition agreement, there has been much spin in sections of the media implying that a drop in Liberal Democrat support is supposedly inevitable.

The result of the delayed Thirsk and Malton election- announced today - saw the Tories increase their vote by 0.2 per cent, a rise of five per cent for the LibDems and a decrease of 11.6 per cent for the Labour Party, thus showing what total cobblers some political commentators talk. Liberal Democrat support is doing well, and, judging by the Dundee LibDem membership increase in the past couple of weeks, the future for the party is bright.
