Lib Dems Confused about Voting Green

A Scottish Green Party used campaign signs from the 2007 Holyrood elections that carried the slogan "First Vote Green". Lib Dems claimed the posters in Lower Granton Road could mislead people into thinking they were meant to mark their ballot papers 1, 2, 3 rather than using a cross.

Edinburgh Greens spokesman Gavin Corbett, said it showed desperation on the part of the Lib Dems that they would "stoop to such trivia".

He said: "I cannot believe that anyone will see a general message on a lamppost and be directed to vote in one way rather than following instructions on a ballot paper. However, to avoid confusing any Lib Dem activists we have arranged for them to be taken down."

This compares to the LIb Dem leaflets that say "Only the Lib Dems can win here" when in Euro Elections every party has a chance.

Hi Adrian,

Fib Dems never like to let the truth get in the way of winning votes. Here in Bristol they make false claims as to what they have been up to. I hope that the electorate will see through the Fib Dem's negative campaigns.
