LIBERAL Democrats high on the success of their leaders' performance in the television debate say the May 6 general and local elections are the most exciting in their lifetime.

Bromley and Chislehurst candidate Sam Webber, 25, claims the performance of Nick Clegg in last Thursday's debate has already had an impact on Bromley residents.

He said: "We are getting a much more positive response from residents than before.

"We have not been ahead in the polls since 1983. This is a huge change in the tectonic plates. We are hoping to pick up council seats in the north and south of Bromley.

"This is the most exciting

election in my lifetime."

Liberal Democrat climate change spokesperson Simon Hughes was out canvassing in Orpington last Saturday afternoon.

He said: "Our aim is to win as many seats as possible. We will work with whatever result the British people give us. We are not looking beyond May 6.

"It would be great to have something that breaks the

political system. It would be hugely refreshing and in the public interest.

"After the debate, we have had a much more positive response from those who were not going to vote before. The feeling that you either vote Labour or Conservatives has changed. They now have an alternative which is us. We will deliver fairness.
