LIBRARY: Commitment exaggerated by UKIP man’s literature

Have your say

The Friends of Deeping Library are, of course, very grateful for anyone’s support for our campaign to save the Deepings Library.

However, campaigning literature put out by David Parsons, UKIP candidate for South Holland and the Deepings, may give a misleading impression of his commitment to our cause.

His leaflet states: “David is campaigning together with local people to save the Deepings Library... He is fully behind local people and the Friends organisation trying to keep the library open.”

However, Mr Parsons is not, and never has been, a member of FoDL.

To our knowledge, he has never supported any part of our campaign, been to any of our events, nor contributed to our efforts.

Of course, he may well feel that our library should stay open and we are pleased about this – the extent of his commitment may appear exaggerated by his literature.
