She can’t lose control – she’s never had it. Easy]t Devon has its credible Remain candidate – Claire Wright with 35% of the vote in 2017 – but Swinson has absolutely no control over the local East Devon Lib Dem candidate who has more reason to stand down than any other Lib Dem.
If she isn’t in control local groups – what is she in control? of? What is she Leader of?
Vote Lib Dem, Green or Labour and get (parachuted in, no local roots) Tory – again.
