In the latest farce in the Bromley & Chislehurst by-election, Lib Dem Ben "Beckenham" Abbotts has sent a telegram to the England team and is claiming credit for getting Blair and Cameron to fly the England flag. The idea that they did so just because a candidate in a by-election did so is laughable. Next Abbotts will be claiming credit for when it rains.
Also the telegram was sent "on behalf of the people of Bromley & Chislehurst". One wonders by whose authority - Abbotts is not a local elected representative. Is he taking the election for granted?
