SIR - A month ago I received through my letter-box a free "newspaper" entitled Hertfordshire News. It is labelled spring 2009 and closer inspection revealed it to be the local Lib Dem propaganda sheet.

If they believe in themselves - as I assume they do - why does not the masthead include an orange banner proclaiming who they are? Are they shrinking violets?

A certain gentleman - whose name escapes me - is repeatedly referred to as "Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate". Until an election is called he can only be a prospective candidate. Perhaps this is what they mean by referring to him elsewhere as PPC.

The small print states "Published and promoted on behalf of the Liberal Democrats all at 9 Hatfield Road, AL1 3RR".

I knew they were few in number, but not so few they could all fit in one building!

In contrast, a half page advertisement in your paper this week for UKIP promotes their prospective parliamentary candidate, John Stocker. It gives a St Albans address, but clearly all of UKIP do not reside there.

I know where my vote will be cast.
