Earlier today we brought you the news that most Lib Dem members would prefer a coalition with Labour to working with the Tories. Some Lib Dems, it seems, just want to join the Labour Party. Former Mayor of Calderdale, Nader Fekri, has quit the Lib Dems saying:
“I find it impossible to defend the devastating policies that this government is inflicting on the country. Not merely its inept management of the economy, with nary a grasp of basic Keynesian economics, but also in major policy areas, especially education and of course the NHS.
“On the economy, far from all being in it together we have a worsening recession which is adversely affecting millions of people across the country, but especially thousands of folk here in Calderdale, every day.”
Fekri is reported to have applied to join the Labour Party.
