“It’s been hard work, but we put a lot of effort in. It’s going to be a hard night for us, not just here but nationally as well.”
Liberal Democrat candidate for Poole, Philip Eades has reflected on his campaign as he awaits the results set to be released at 2.30 later on this morning.
He also reflected upon fellow Liberal Democrat Danny Alexander, one of the Party’s major players, but one who is also in danger of losing his seat in Inverness, Nairn Badenoch and Strathspey to a rumoured SNP landslide.
Eades reflected on how good Alexander has been during this campaign, yet he has simply struggled against the exponential support for the Scottish National Party north of the boarder.
Eades also spoke of how he sadly believes that the Conservatives have achieved a comfortable win in Poole, which he states shows how the electoral system is broken.
Eades also spoke of his party’s aim to change the election system, stating how “25% of the country will vote and get no representation”.
Eades’ main opposition, Conservative Robert Syms, failed to attend the local hustings events surrounding rumours that the candidate didn’t need to as the area was a safe Conservative seat.
