There is a battle royal going on over here in South Bermondsey between Labour and the Lib Dems, with UKIP stirring in the wings, something no doubt Graham Neale would attest to ( as a regular se1 contributor). Labour are clearly targeting the ward as very winnable; the Lib Dems appear to have taken to the trenches and are fighting a rearguard action. Although there are UKIP mutterings I have as yet to receive any electoral communication from them unlike both Labour and the Lib Dems who clearly believe its worth sacrificing a few more trees in order to get their message across.

Yes, South Bermondsey has seen some Labour activity in the last few weeks,
but the all year-round Liberal-Democrat work of my colleagues in the community:
Saving the Tenda road nursery,
Stopping the administration's plans to build a bail hostel on The Old Kent Road,
Stopping Notting Hill from raising rents by up to 40%,
and our tireless commitment to local advocacy, including an advice surgery every Saturday morning has sent out a clear message that we work all year, not just when there are elections.
We are working hard, but we are no strangers to graft, and all three local councillors want to continue delivering for local people.
Ultimately the people will decide.
Whatever happens, it has been a privilege to represent the people of South Bermondsey.

Number of election comms through our Riverside Ward door:

LibDems: 9
Tories: 2
UKIP: 1

No Labour. No anybody else. Make of that what you will.

Here in Bishop's Ward I have received communications from:
LibDems
Labour
Tories
UKIP
Greens
BNP
one flyer each from the last four and the most, by far, from the LibDems. It would appear that they are most worried about losing their seats to Labour.
Maybe broken manifesto promises, broken signed pledges and siding with the Really Nasty Party has something to do with it

would you scan and post the flyers up here if you can? just to get an idea of the promises, pledges, fantasies etc? thanks
