Lib Dems winning the poster war in Eastbourne

Daniel Neilson writes for Total Politics:
If the number of posters is anything to go by, a different political landscape belies the serene seafront. Although Nigel Waterson won his fourth term in 2005 with a majority of 1,124 against Lib Dem Stephen Lloyd, it is the words ‘Stephen Lloyd to Win’ on bright orange placards that dominate the streets. They undoubtedly outnumber Conservative posters, especially in the middle class areas of Hampden Park and Old Town. The notable exception is the resolutely Conservative area of Meads, at the foot of the newly founded South Downs National Park.

In my densely populated urban area where most of the houses are around 100 yrs old, LD poles in front gardens are the only ones that I have seen. But did see a couple of Tory boards abandoned on the local Common.
