TOWER HAMLETS ROW HAS BROAD IMPLICATIONS FOR LIB DEMS

The row over the issuing of allegedly racist leaflets by Liberal Democrats in Tower Hamlets has broader implications than the tactics of some local council members, the Times reports (p2).

The paper says the affair will impact on the national party's distinctive community politics campaigning, and its prospects of co-operation with Labour.

The Liberal Democrat leadership last night attempted to distance itself from the escalating feud over the Tower Hamlets enquiry, terming it a 'big row in a small town'.

The Guardian reports (p2) that the credibility of Labour's attack on the Liberal Democrats in Tower Hamlets was damaged yesterday when it emerged that Labour has itself failed to identify which of its members was responsible for producing fake canvass returns in September's Millwall by election.

The fake returns talked up the chances of a British National Party victory, inadvertently strengthening its profile, comments the paper.
