Former Liberal Democrat politician and recent Labour convert, Andrew Duffield, has put his private number plate up for sale.
Andrew Duffield bought L16 DEM, which reads “LIB DEM”, in 1993 when the L-reg plates were released.
Duffield has removed the number plate from his vehicle “for obvious reasons”, and currently stores it on a retention certificate until a buyer is found.
‘I’m using standard plates and certainly won’t be displaying L16 DEM now!’ He said.
After growing “increasingly angered” by the coalition government failing to “protect the poor and disadvantaged”, Andrew decided to leave the Lib Dems.
Now with Labour, the teacher is on the market for a replacement number plate.
‘I have located LA80 OUR – but unfortunately that won’t become available until 2030 … so I’m now looking out for PRO6 RES.’
Andrew Duffield hopes to stand as MP for Hexham in the next general election.
