Absolutely - Liberal Democrat MP, Bob Russell said just that:
Now retired, Councillor Offen [the Lib Dem candidate] is able to devote the time to the role of Councillor which the Tory candidate simply cannot because of his employment situation.
Got that folks! This MP thinks you can't be an effective councillor if you work for a living! And he kept digging:
‘I stand by my comment that the Lib Dem candidate has more time at his disposal than the Tory candidate.’
So one guesses that Mr Russell wouldn't vote for any Liberal Democrat candidate who had less "time on his hands" that an alternative from another party?
Although that would be to expect consistency from the Liberal Democrats. Which would be a first!
