“Want change?” thunders the latest glossy brochure from Liberal Democrat by-election candidate Jane Dodds. It fails to add the fact of the matter: “You won’t get it with me!”

Instead it quotes betting odds, apparently from Ladbrokes on July 12, stating that Ms Dodds is the 1/7 favourite to win the seat, with Tory expenses faker Chris Davies at 7/1, Des Parkinson for the Brexit Party at 12/1 and Tom Davies for Welsh Labour at 100/1.

I can’t find any predictions for the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election on the Ladbrokes website so there is no way to confirm these figures.

The derisory treatment of Labour suggests that this is the party Ms Dodds really fears. Why else would her canvassers be trying to convince voters in Labour strongholds like Cwmtwrch and Penycae that Labour isn’t even standing?

Ms Dodds’ campaign really has been the lowest of the low.

The local policies she offers are primarily things that are already happening, courtesy of other organisations like Ofcom (broadband) or the Labour-run Welsh Assembly Government (healthcare and economic improvement).

As a Liberal Democrat, she cannot influence Parliamentary decisions on Brexit and anybody supporting her for her party’s ‘Remain’ stance is throwing their vote away on a protest.

Labour is the only choice for real change. Claims that the party’s policy on Brexit is confused are lies. Claims that it is mired in anti-Semitism are lies.

And you know why?

Because people like Jane Dodds know they can only beat Labour by making a fool out of you.

And that is the full extent of their purpose.

They won’t do anything to help you, if they get elected.

They will simply reinforce the hard, right-wing, neoliberal consensus that has squashed working people for the last nine years since the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats entered their unholy alliance to inflict unnecessary austerity on us while filling their own pockets.

But don’t take my word for it. If Ms Dodds wins, you’ll be able to see for yourself. Any progress will be from policies already enacted by Ofcom and by Labour. The Yellow Tory will do nothing for you.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
