As Sara reports, more evidence that David Cameron is a hypocrite.
Several of my good friends in Watford, and many others besides, have been subjected to a nasty campaign of hate and intimidation for the past three and a half years.
Showing their support for or standing for the Lib Dems.
This campaign was not just a bit of argy-bargy, it was serious, planned and sustained criminal damage, defamation and intimidation.
It was a deliberate attempt on the part of a Conservative Parliamentary Candidate to win election by means of intimidation and hate rather than by democratic means.
The court has rightly passed a serious sentence.
You might think, in the circumstances, that David Cameron might want to find out how this had come about and what the Tory Party could do to stop it happening again?
But no, not a peep from the man.
You might think that the local Tories might release some statement of apology, or tell us how Oakley got away with it for so long?
But no, not a single word of regret or explanation.
Watford Lib Dems have not only put up with the intimidation, but carried on working hard for the local community through it all.
They are an example to us.
You can help them though.
They are fighting a key local by-election this Thursday.
Please contact their office on 01923 238552 or the local party Chairman, Stephen Giles-Medhurst on 01923 893661 if you can help in any way.
Let's prove that democratic campaigning is the way to win, not criminal damage and intimidation, and send a clear message to cameron & co that their hypocrisy has been noted.
