Hypocrite Sarah Teather’s leafleters claim Labour “betrayal” over cuts

Liberal Democrat activists in Sarah Teather’s constituency are delivering anonymous attack leaflets claiming Labour have “let us down” on cuts — despite their MP’s status as a government minister who voted for Osborne’s austerity agenda.

The council by-election leaflet, blogged by Cllr Krupesh Hirani, brazenly asks “Who can you trust to stop the cuts?”, answering itself “Not Labour!”, and quotes union leaders Dave Prentice and Bob Crow. It makes no mention of Teather or the Liberal Democrats’ candidate, Alison Hopkins, and is decked out in red rather than Lib Dem yellow.

Do Brent Lib Dems suppose it is Sarah who will stop the cuts?
