LETTER: He joined the wrong party

Stephen Lloyd was a decent MP. He was energetic, considerate and helpful. He served Eastbourne well and was generous in defeat.

Unfortunately he made one big mistake. He joined the wrong party, the now discredited Liberal Democratic party. If he had been a Conservative he would have won handsomely and could have been Eastbourne’s MP for as long as he desired.
