We need to stand up to Lib Dem dominance in Lewes Town Council

Your item on the Lewes town council byelection (“It’s double delight for the Lib Dems”, 25 October) quoted Councillor Lamb claiming that voters were flocking back to his party as the Lib Dems are the “only party who can stand up to the Conservatives in Lewes”.

Not a difficult task as the Conservatives have NO representatives on Lewes Town Council.

In fact the party we really need to stand up to is the Lib Dems who have dominated the town council for years, and of course nationally have sustained in power the most reactionary government in modern times who want to take us back to Victorian times.

Perhaps that is where the Lib Dems belong - who wants a paler shade of blue?
