Esther and Walton residents today found leaflets being pushed through their letterboxes attacking Dominic Raab’s handling of the Harry Dunn case. It even came with a lovely poster…
The leaflet comes from candidate Kyle Taylor who is standing for ‘Advance Together’. It includes a number of blunt low-blows as well as certain fonts that are reminiscent of a Lib Dem leaflet – so what is ‘Advance Together’?
Advance Together is a party led by Annabel Mullin (who promotes the anti-Raab leaflet) – a former Lib Dem candidate for Kensington and Change UK candidate in the EU elections.
Kyle Taylor – the candidate putting the anti-Raab leaflet out – is also a former Lib Dem, having worked as Chief of Staff to Simon Hughes MP for three years and his campaign manager in 2017. He also worked for Best for Britain.
Kyle also ran the ‘Fair Vote Project’ – a failed campaign established by Guido’s friends Zoolander Shahmir and Chris Wylie.
Kyle’s leaflets make no mention of his new ‘party’ and only mention his name once in a small font. It’s unlikely voters will remember the name Kyle Taylor or Advance Together when they get to the ballot box. They will remember the attack on Raab.
This kind of kamikaze candidate attack will only help the Lib Dems and Kyle gets an extra £30,000 to spend to help his real favoured party out, while keeping the Lib Dems ‘clean’ of such extreme negative campaigning. Expect even more dodgy tactics from Lib Dems as election day approaches…

Simon Hughes and Sarah Olney singing Simply The Best at Lib Dem conference. Since Simon and Sarah both lost in June it seems the voters disagree…
Nine months on from losing his seat in May, Simon Hughes has found himself a new gig. The former LibDem justice minister has just been appointed as a maternity cover spinner at the Open University on a year’s contract, where:
He will support the Vice-Chancellor, Peter Horrocks, and report into the university’s Director of Communications, Lucian Hudson. He will lead the university’s public affairs team, which forms part of the Communications Unit.
From minister in Whitehall to stand-in junior press officer in Milton Keynes….
Readers of Guido’s Sun on Sunday column will be dismayed to hear that turnout for the Lib Dems Conference Bisexual Flashmob wasn’t as high as one would expect from such an esteemed event. Despite their calls for ‘all bi, pan and multisexual people’ to join them at Bournemouth Pier, it appears that only a few dozen managed to attend, with even Simon Hughes opting to give the event a miss.
If any fewer had turned out, the attendance figure would have been almost bi-nary…
