Conservatives torpedo themselves in Leicester Mayoral constest

Today's Leicester Mercury has the news that the Conservative candidate for Mayor of Leicester, Ross Grant, has failed to provide his artwork for the Your Vote Matters booklet, which has been sent to all 229,777 voters in the city. Both Grant and his agent declined to give the Mercury any explanation of this omission.

You can download the booklet yourself from the Leicester City Council website. My sources tell me that the Conservatives' attempt to demand that Grant be included in this online version was rebuffed.

If you do read the booklet you will see that Regine Anderson, the UKIP candidate, has also failed to submit any artwork.

This is not so surpising, in view of the recent revelation that Ms Anderson is "busy studying for her A levels".
