Will Labour sue (again)?

Last time, UKIP was reduced to near-bankruptcy. If Labour takes action this time, any damages awarded could finish off the anti-Europe party for good.

Opponents of the Labour Party seem keen to throw wild accusations; a Tory leaflet has suggested that Labour brought “hepatitis” to Dudley.

The Conservative candidate involved – Kamran Razzaq – has been suspended as a Conservative candidate.

What will UKIP do?

Ukip has been accused of making “completely untrue and grossly offensive” claims after it suggested Labour had ignored sexual abuse of children in towns and cities across the country.

A leaflet distributed by the party ahead of local elections on Thursday claimed “politically-correct” Labour councils had “looked the other way” while grooming gangs “raped our daughters”.

It listed 16 areas Ukip claimed had suffered from sex abuse scandals under Labour councils, adding: “Labour has betrayed us.”

The leaflets, seen by The Independent, were distributed in Rochdale, where 19 men were convicted in recent years for abusing at least 47 girls.

The claims were furiously denied by Labour, which said they were designed to distract from Ukip’s “descent into irrelevance”. Ukip provided no evidence to support the allegations.

A similar claim made by a Ukip MEP about three Labour MPs led to her being successfully sued for libel, leaving the party on the verge of bankruptcy.
