Commenting on the announcement, Chafford and North Stifford Candidate, James Donald, said:

“This has been an historic year for the Liberal Democrats, proving that we are not simply a party of opposition, but a party that is delivering real achievements in government. From raising the income tax threshold to the triple lock guarantee for pensioners, these are policies straight from Lib Dem manifesto to the Budget Red Book.

“The people of Thurrock have a choice in this election. They can choose a Labour or Conservative candidate who is more interested in scoring points on each other. Or choose a Lib Dem candidate, more interested in delivering the kind of change that Thurrock wants and needs.”

  1. There is a rumour going around that the fascist BNP have only managed to find 7 candidates willing to stand this year in Thurrock.

  2. I for one am so glad the Lib Dems are contesting so many seats in the local elections. It gives the chance for many more Thurrock residents to show them how much they despise the broken promises of the Tory stooges.

    They promised not to raise tuition fees for universities – they lied

    We will not got the OAP winter fuel allowance they lied again. But its only been cut by £50 if your under 79 or £100 if your over. Only a little white lie Mr Clegg.

    On May 5th lets tell the Fib Dems that they are not wanted in Thurrock.

    What is this trying to ensure people vote Labour? the way to get the votes is be there when the residents need you and stand up in the chamber for them not sit back taking your ALLOWANCES!

    As for the Lib Dem lies it’s simple all political parties lie Labour promised a referendum on the EU did we get it? NO! and yet those core voters have fell by over 38% compared to 10 years ago!

    On Party Lies – all parties fail the people because they all sing from the hymn sheet of there leader! and not there residents that put them where they are that’s where you all fail!

  4. All parties lie, almost all politicians are self serving. The only way to make the political parties sit up and take notice is to vote for your local Independent, break the three party monopoly for a change.

  5. Met Mr Palmer last month – he is doing other things – pity though. High time for Lib Dems would of been Election 2010 but little effort made in Thurrock. Hard slog now with Coalition established and backsliding on Universities and NHS. Clegg and Cameron too cosy but will Thurrock Lib Dems surprise or at heart are they like Mr Clegg Social Democrats.

  6. Gray64; in reply to you saying voters should vote independent. A vote for the East Tilbury Independents is a vote in the chamber for thurrock tories. over the last couple of years they have been firmly in bed with Gary Hague and his merry men. They may have got themselves elected as independants but everybody knows they are tory through and through.

  7. Sting, you miss the point. If everybody elected an independent the Labour/Tory monopoly would be broken. I am not talking about whether or not the Independents are to the left or right of politics. It’s perfectly feasible for an Independent to be left wing or right wing and vote accordingly. My point is that Independents could be more likely to do what’s best for the people of Thurrock rather than what’s best for either of the main two parties. Both of whom I despise.
