Some of us expected better from Mr Goldsmith.
Others, like Chesterfield’s Labour MP Toby Perkins, didn’t. He tweeted: “Zac Goldsmith is a truly desperate man, at the head of a failing and unpleasant campaign.”
Zac Goldsmith has sent out leaflets warning ethnic minority Londoners that a vote for Sadiq Khan could put their family jewellery at risk.
The Conservative London mayoral candidate was accused of “patronising” minority groups after suggesting that only Goldsmith could protect their family heirlooms..
One letter sent by Goldsmith to British Tamils living in London, suggests a vote for the Labour candidate could lead to a new “wealth tax on family jewellery.”
The other side of the leaflet compares the Conservative candidate’s record in relation to Tamils with Khan’s. It claims that while Goldsmith would “protect your family’s homes from burglary” Khan’s party “SUPPORTS A WEALTH TAX on family jewellery.”
