Thanks to Johnny Void for flagging up another example of Iain Duncan Smith’s – or at least his campaigners’ – mind-bedraggling pettiness. He (Mr Void) writes:Lisa McKenzie, who is standing for Class War against Iain Duncan Smith in Chingford, was arrested last night in the latest petty police attack on the group’s election campaign.
Lisa was accused of putting a small sticker on a wall two weeks previously and thrown into the back of a van, hand-cuffed and held for hours.
The article goes on to state that when the candidate and Class War “recently went on the campaign trail in Chingford they were followed by police, repeatedly harassed and threatened with arrest. Class War candidate for Croydon South, Jon Bigger, was recently followed around the constituency by up to a dozen coppers just for handing out leaflets.“
That’s not democracy. The advice, when someone from another party tries to interfere in your legitimate campaigning, is to report them for electoral fraud. How many of you think anything would happen about it?
