The Libertarian Party branch in Dudley have successfully registered five candidates to stand in the May elections. Dudley is at the heart of the growing Mercia region of the Party.
Two of the candidates are that phrase that more high brow ‘I am more Libertarian than you’, types don’t like; ‘Community Activists’. Gary Farmer and Wayne Lewis can be seen most weekends clearing up the streets and rubbish that the local council have frankly failed to deal with. The local council workers may be willing, but their managers and council members are letting residents down badly.
In one ward, the local Labour councillor has been suspended for allegedly anti-semitic remarks and the local Tories have been forced to parachute in a young lad from outside the area, who seems to have secured a ten second photo-op at the local Red House Glass Cone in a clear breach of purdah.

The two and a half party system is bust, vote for Freedom. North of the border vote for the Scottish Libertarian Party, In England, vote for our candidates where we have them standing, or failing that vote for like-minded souls in the Freedom Alliance.
Vote for action, not the same people who come blinking into the sunlight at election having done nothing at all for the rest of the year.
