I see that the outcry over the Tories' recent leaflet has made it to the Echo today, together with confirmation that the authorities have been alerted.
In his comments, Tory election supremo Charles Johnson does what any good agent should do, and loyally tries to protect his candidate. So we learn that both Charles and Edward checked the copy that was sent to the printers, and the imprint was there. A pesky computer was apparently to blame for its subsequent non-appearance on the leaflet.
Apparently, the Tories now have introduced another stage for checking proofs before they are despatched.
History, alas, has repeated itself in the wrap-around puff for Captain Legwarmer which accompanied this week's Advertiser. No imprint once more. Neither was there any complete address identifying who promoted the material.
The Tories are now giving every impression of a bunch of amateurs who are delighting in flicking the V's at the bodies who oversee elections. I can confirm that a complaint from Labour was emailed yesterday.
This nonsense from the Tories has to stop.
