The Lib Dems have been stalwart supporters of the Durham Teaching Assistants.
On that basis, their existing Councillors here deserve to be re-elected, while their candidates deserve to defeat the Labour ones in wards where that was the easiest way of doing so.
But I carry no candle for that party, which enabled everything that David Cameron and George Osborne did.
Still, though, the Lib Dems are sitting pretty today.
They have already won one Remain seat from the Conservatives in the South, and that was when everyone thought that Theresa May was a Soft Brexiteer, if that.
There are dozens more.
