Letter to Editor: “Is Thurrock UKIP election leaflet misleading voters?”

UKIP 17 2

Dear Editor,

I’m just writing as a resident of Aveley because I’m concerned about the latest UKIP leaflet that came through our door.

In it, the candidate, Tim Aker, implies that the only choice in Thurrock is between himself and Jackie Doyle-Price.

I think there is a danger that some residents will see this and think Labour aren’t even standing.

Regards

Cathy Sisterton

There is no mention of Labour or the Liberal Democrats. This has been done to deliberately mislead voters into a false pretence that Labour and the Liberal Democrats are not standing in Thurrock, and that the only alternative to Jackie Doyle-Price is UKIP. A lady recently raised this issue with Your Thurrock. […]
