I tried to find libdemwatch today but apparently their account has been suspended!
However I stumbled across something from the Guardian's Election 2005 blog from last April where someone was belittling the Lib Dem campaign in Leeds NW:
"Witnessing the Lidbem campaign strategy on the ground can leave you wondering which way is up.
Libdemwatch has picked up an example of this in their LeedsNW campaign - where, despite coming 3rd in the last two general elections - they are STILL claiming they are set to win. How do they do this? Well certainly not by showing their share of the vote in '97 or '01.
They do this by showing their share of the vote increased between 1997 & 2001... erm leaving them in 3rd place again!
Witness this is all it's glory from a scanned 'Focus' newsletter here: http://www.libdemwatch.co.uk/archives/000466.html"
Some interesting comments - both pro Lib Dem and against - follow.
After reading this I thought to myself, "Wait a moment ... Didn't we...?" and yes, there it is
