A photo-opportunity too far

Martin Horwood is known for his love of photo-opportunities, one such photo which appeared in the most recent LibDem “Focus” newsletter incensed Cheltenham resident Rob Bishop, who was moved to produce a critical but comical flyer which he delivered to residents in his neighbourhood of St. Marks.

As a service to those Cheltenham residents who were unfortunate enough to receive Mr Horwood`s flyer but missed out on the antidote, here is Mr Bishop`s flyer.

The story which appeared inthe Echo about this piece of local democracy in action can be read here. The Echo describes St Mark’s Against The Cuts as a splinter group of Cheltenham Against The Cuts, we would like to make clear that in fact both groups enjoy a close and loving relationship!

  1. It was not an “anti-closure protest hijacked” by Martin Horwood it was a photo shoot.

    Comical? Don’t underestimate us. That speech bubble calls us stupid. We are as capable as implementing PR tactics and using them to our advantage as politicians are.
