Lib Dem Jody Dunn’s chances of winning Hartlepool at the general election are looking more distant than ever.
The Lib Dems couldn’t even make any inroads in last month’s local by-election in Rift House ward caused by newly elected Labour MP Iain Wright’s resignation from the Council. In fact, the Lib Dem share of the vote fell from 31.7% last June to just 17%.
Oh dear. Has anybody actually seen Jody in Hartlepool since her by-election defeat?
