Forgive This Writer if this is a mistake, but isn’t this behaviour actually against the law?

The gloves are off in the West Oldham by-election if UKIP’s latest leaflet is anything to go by.

The kippers are distributing material mocked up to look like a Labour Party flyer— with a list of Labour policies which are, errrrrr, not actually Labour policies:

  • “Axing our armed forces”
  • “Abolishing the monarchy”
  • “Hand over the Falklands to Argentina”

While the legal small print at the bottom identifies the leaflet as the work of the UKIP election agentitdoes not mention the party by name.

This comes after UKIP complained loudly that presenting Nigel Farage’s views as UKIP policy was misleading.
