David and Goliath

I'm intrigued that Samuel Brakespeare, veteran diarist at the Cambs Times, seems surprised that local Liberal Democrats aren't awash with cash.

Our leaflets and newsletters wouldn't ask for donations if we didn't need them. Elections are expensive things to fight, and unlike the Conservatives we don't have wealthy backers or vast amounts of councillors' allowances to call on, or the might of the 'Con Clubs' or portfolios of investments.

Next May's local elections really will be a David and Goliath affair. I'm hoping David manages to land at least a few hits!
