I dont think the Unions and Labour could have timed it better. Given all the stuff in the press at the moment regarding the influence UNITE has over Labour and allegations that they effectively buy influence in Labour, why oh why would they pick today to start delivering disgraceful leaflets in Crowle scaremongering vulnerable residents about rent rises.
The timing was made worse by the fact that just this last weekend, we delivered a leaflet in Crowle warning residents that this sort of scaremongering would go on. I have never seen such hapless inexperienced campaigning as I have seen recently, but this takes it to new lows.
One of the people who has contacted me to express their disgust described the leaflet as 'a Labour leaflet' which shows how smart the public are in figuring out the relationship between Labour and their Union paymasters.
The serious point though really is that Labour and their Union bosses have chosen to scare some of the most vulnerable people in our communities for the sake of a few votes. Heartless and cruel in the extreme. What nasty people they are.
