The gloves are off in the West Oldham by-election if UKIP’s latest leaflet is anything to go by.
The kippers are distributing material mocked up to look like a Labour Party flyer — with a list of Labour policies which are, errrrrr, not actually Labour policies:
- “Axing our armed forces”
- “Abolishing the monarchy”
- “Hand over the Falklands to Argentina”
While the legal small print at the bottom identifies the leaflet as the work of the UKIP election agent — it does not mention the party by name.
This comes after UKIP complained loudly that presenting Nigel Farage’s views as UKIP policy was misleading.
