LOCAL ELECTIONS: Conservatives Accuse Labour Of ‘Delivering Hepatitis’ To Ward In West Midlands
A Conservative party leaflet has faced online ridicule after accusing the Labour party of delivering hepatitis to a ward in Stourbridge ahead of this week’s local elections.
The leaflet – which urged the public to vote for Conservative candidate Kamran Razzaq in the Cradley ward – contains three columns perpetrating to list what the Conservatives, Labour and UKIP have delivered to the local community.
Whilst, they say, the Conservatives have delivered a “safer and cleaner ward”, “half a million pounds back into green care” and more, they allege that Labour have delivered nothing more than “hepatitis” and the “decline of our area”.
UKIP, who have the smallest box on the leaflet, have allegedly only delivered “2 defibrillators” and “petitions”.
Remarkably, the leaflet also spelt the word ‘community’ wrong, writing instead ‘commnunity’.
Posting on social media site Facebook, one user wrote: “Is this one of the worst election leaflets?
“How the hell can Labour be responsible for Hepatitis in a council ward – how low can people get?”
Another, questioning the legality of the leaflet, wrote: “Surly that breaks election rules”
