This is an alert to ensure that everyone is aware of the origins of one of the election leaflets put out by one of my opponents.
As leaflets start dropping on Shaftesbury doormats for the upcoming County Council elections, you should be aware that there is one leaflet doing the rounds that purports to give a pen picture of all five candidates.
The trouble is that it was written by one of the candidates as part of their election campaign and is only complimentary about one of them with the rest being slated – so work it out for yourself. (Check the very, very small print at the bottom of the back of the leaflet for confirmation.)
And here was me thinking we’d be arguing over issues!
Having talked to some people about this though, I think it may be back-firing on that candidate spectacularly!
