From a window in Brecon and Radnorshire: Liberal Democrat Jane Dodds has “spammed” voters with so many leaflets that they can’t wait to see the back of her.

I found the image above on a local friend’s Facebook page. It – and the comments it attracted – illustrate the strength of feeling against Liberal Democrat by-election candidate Jane Dodds after she dumped more than 24 pieces of junk mail on residents of the constituency.

It seems people no longer care about Ms Dodds’s policies. They just want her to go away and never come back.

According to a commenter on my friend’s page, by July 24, “There’s been 24 so far.. I have a contact collecting them!”

Another added: “We get 4 of everything[. I’m] sick of seeing her name.”

Another: “Yet another one in the post this morning!!”

I stopped counting at 13. They’re still coming thick and fast though,” said yet another resident.

“Opened the postbox tonight and there was another!” From another exasperated voter.

And another commenter said the constant leaflet drops were “Bordering on harassment!”

That’s exactly what it is. And how much is it costing?

The price of 25 (and increasing…) leaflets, going to tens of thousands of households in Brecon and Radnorshire, must be considerable. One of them was glossy and ran to several pages. Even if they were all hand-delivered, the price must run to thousands of pounds.

And what about the cost of transporting all these Lib Dem adherents from other parts of the country? I met a man from the West Country in a pub a few weeks ago and I understand others have come from across the UK. What has their party contributed to their expenses?

No matter what the result of the election, I think we’re going to need to examine Ms Dodds’s expenses in close detail.

And remember: If you’re as sick of the sight of her as everybody else, don’t vote for her! If you want to support a Remainer candidate – who can actually help that cause – vote for Labour’s Tom Davies.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
