Conservative activist says: we must lie in Ealing Southall

It’s a favourite cliche of the other parties to attack Liberal Democrat campaign tactics. However, the evidence – as ever – is rather different in Ealing Southall, where a Parliamentary by-election is underway.

Ben Surtess (a name that may be familiar to some as he has written some interesting posts on PoliticalBetting.com) is a Conservative activist and over on ConservativeHome has been arguing that the party must lie in its election campaign:

The two themes that must be pressed home within the first week of the campaign is that the Conservatives are the party challenging Labour … and that Lit is the “local” candidate while the LibDem candidate is not (even if they are).
