Having been whupped in Corby, the Tories have hit upon a new by-election strategy for the Croydon North poll on 29 November: producing nearly eight minutes of campaign video … which doesn’t mention the Conservative Party once!

Even the imprint — smallprint required by law declaring the promoter of election materials — gives the name of their candidate’s election agent rather than the Tories.

“Promoted by Ian Parker on behalf of the Andy Stranack, 161 Brigstock Road, Thornton Heath, CR7 7JP.”

Contrast this with imprints for Corby:

“promoted by Matt Edmonds on behalf of the Corby and East Northamptonshire Conservatives”

This puts a whole new meaning on the phrase ‘shy Tories’.

  1. Sounds like a nice guy. It’s just a real shame that he’s been conned into thinking that conervative policies will solve the problems that face the “underclass”

  2. Amusing to see also how the ‘Andy by others’ was all shot in the same place. They really do think the electorate are complete idiots don’t they!

    Hope the infringement has been reported to the Electoral Commission.
