There is a lesson to be learned from this article - namely that Martin was ableto unseat the local Tory because the local Liberal and Labour parties were willing to stand aside for the most likely candidate to beat the Tories in order to avoid splitting the vote.

If only the East Devon Labour and Liberal constituency parties were as willing to put country before party.
