Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I notice there are no figures for rises n support of 3rd parties. People stopping voting out of apathy/disenchantment does not support the article.

I've not seen any move to the lib dems down here, even if the SNP have attracted voters with their impossibilism up in Scotland (c'mon Merry, we need diaries on this)

Nope, the article continues with:

The Liberal Democrats, campaigning hard to defend half their council seats on May 3, rise three points to 21%. Other smaller parties climb to 12%, including 2% each for the Greens and Ukip.
