What UKIP should have explained in their leaflet is the following:
But if this leaflet is the best the critics can do, I do not think he has much of a case to answer.
Labour's second Freepost leaflet is doing the rounds.
This leaflet is A3, folded in to three, which is why it appears to have part printed upside down.
The Tory leaflet is actually A3 (when folded out) so I copied it as best I could not including the fold out middle.
This latest Lib Dem leaflet is A4, folded length ways.
Less than one week until the by-election in Norwich North and we have only just received our first leaflet from the Green Party.
I know a Lib Dem leaflet is going out already in other parts of the constituency.
The leaflet is too wordy, far too many unncessary photos, and the local party hasn't really made the effort with their freepost leaflet.
The leaflet is tiny because it's meant to appeal to people who'll just glance at it before throwing it away.
