Now, that seems a little unfair to me.
I admit, you won't catch me voting for the SDP (or the Liberal Democrats, as they now style themselves) in any great hurry,
but a "bad" party?
I mean, the National Front is a bad party.
The SDP are just a touch...well...ineffectual.
To be fair, they oppose racism and crusader nonsense out in the Middle East; they support electoral reform; they're happy with the idea of decriminalising marijuana. They're hardly "bad".
And as for "little public support", one assumes that this must be outside of the huge areas of Scotland and Western England which return their politicians to Parliament at every election.
