The Sunday Express are reporting that Labour candidate Moyra Tamsin Dunwoody-Kneafsy has been ordered to tear up her campaign leaflets. The leaflets for the Crewe and Nantwich by-election are to be scrapped over fears of a back lash against dirty campaigning. One senior Labour source said: “They had been told to attack the Tories on policy not the background of an individual. We want to win on policy, not some old-style class war.”
The leaflet in question sported slogans such as: “Do you really think a Tory toff from Tarporley cares?”, “out-of-touch Tory” and “Stop the Tory Rot”. However I find that mild compared to this Labour leaflet:
Con man? Where the hell do they get off calling Conservative candidate Edward Timpson a con man? What's next? Just how far are Labour willing to go?
