A follower on Twitter just showed me this free newspaper that his elderly mother received through the door of her sheltered housing accommodation….
At first glance it looks like a normal freebie newspaper, much like the Metro, or the GEN in Glasgow. It even says at the top ” Local news delivered to you for free”…
This is not a free local newspaper. This has been designed, created, and delivered by the Liberal Democrats – This is party propaganda.
You would need to search the small print at the very bottom of the back page in order to find that information, something which I would imagine many an elderly person, such as my follower’s mother, might find difficult to do.
To play a little dirty is to be expected in politics but to try and trick the elderly members of your community in such a manner as this is beyond the pale.
