Labour pulls ‘blue’ elec­tion flyer

Yorkshire Post - - POLITICS & ECONOMY -

LABOUR HAS pulled a lo­cal elec­tion leaflet which ac­cused the Con­ser­va­tives of “s ****** g on us to fund tax cuts for the wealthy” from cir­cu­la­tion.

Kirklees Coun­cil deputy leader Shabir Pan­dor, elec­tion agent for the Bat­ley East seat in which the leaflet was cir­cu­lated, said party fig­ures did not no­tice the bad lan­guage when re­pro­duc­ing a graphic down­loaded from the in­ter­net.

A party source quipped: “The word­ing may be a touch blue but there’s no doubt it cre­ates a vivid mes­sage.

“It means thou­sands of leaflets down the pan, so to speak.”

With the race to be­come Sh­effield City Re­gion’s first mayor get­ting closer to the fin­ish line, all can­di­dates have agreed to a live de­bate.

The de­bate is set to take place on April 25 at BBC Ra­dio Sh­effield, in as­so­ci­a­tion with The Star news­pa­per in Sh­effield. It will be hosted by pre­sen­ter Toby Fos­ter.
