What the papers say - election trivia

Things are hotting up in the media as they seek to drum up some enthusiasm amongst the electorate for the General Election. The Daily Mirror in particular is not letting itself be accused of sitting on the fence as this Kevin Maguire column illustrates:

Millionaire Zac Goldsmith has put me on a Tory leaflet to attack his Lib Dem opponent.

What an indignity! So, to even things up, here’s my view of him for her to use as she sees fit.

“Whatever my ­political differences with Susan Kramer, I admire her integrity. She’s respected in Westminster and works incredibly hard for the people of ­Richmond Park and North Kingston. It would be monstrously unfair if playboy Zac Goldsmith bought the seat with inherited wealth.

“We’re all the poorer if democracy’s purchased by the kid with the offshore trust fund.”

Meanwhile the Independent has set the bar quite high for Liberal Democrat success in Wales. According to their full colour pull-out electoral map of the UK, in addition to Brecon and Radnorship, Cardiff Central, Ceredigion and Montgomeryshre the Welsh Liberal Democrats are apparently also defending Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, Cynon Valley and Islwyn. I wonder if anybody has told our candidates.
