AS the Libertarian Party candidate for Wisbech South in the upcoming local elections, I have been out leafleting and canvassing to get my message out to the voters.

But I have not seen any sign of the other candidates and this has been confirmed by all the voters I have talked to.

Why is this, why won't the other candidates come face to face with the electorate?

Surely the other candidates are treating the voters with contempt, assuming that their votes are already in the bag.

Or perhaps they know that it is the voters that hold the politicians in contempt what with knowledge of their venal nature and their policies for ever greater taxation and government control.
