Sir Nick Harvey, our local Lib Dem MP, was in South Molton today walking around the pannier market. I find it disturbing that a political party is using the South Molton by-election for wider party political motives i.e. with an eye on next year’s general election. I’ll say it again – party politics should have absolutely no place at the local level. That’s not just my view, it’s a view I’ve heard widely expressed whilst walking around South Molton.
