John was not a LibDem

I have recently received from the Lib Dems a copy of their Focus leaflet which they have put out for the by-election in Longhoughton and I am somewhat dismayed about the tone and context of their open letter on the front page.

For someone who did not know John Taylor, the first two paragraphs could be construed that he was a LibDem, nothing could be further from the truth.

For many years until his sad death, he was an Independent and prior to that a staunch Conservative and was once chairman of the Association here in the Berwick constituency.
