Utterly outrageous

Poll card arrived. Is anyone in the media tackling this? I have no TV or radio. Remain send propaganda WITH the official card, meant to be impartial. Not a sign of a Leave pamphlet. This must be tantamount to fraud.

    Martin Lewis did not give his permission for this and emphasises that he is neutral.
    Outrageous indeed.

      Yes, I read that, too. He said on his own site that he won’t be laying out either case until early June.

    Card and leaflet arrived separately, a few days apart, at my house.

    Did you notice that the leaflet is from Will Straw (fine print, bottom of page 2)?

      Will Straw, issue of that slime ball weasel Jack ‘Trot’ Straw.

      and never forgetting – the issue of the Messiah – ah la! Toe-nee bliar.

      According to a report, alluding to the Chilcot inquiry on the front page in today’s ‘Sunday Times’, it’s not only Bliar who’ll feel the wrath of public opprobrium from this oh so bloody tardy public inquiry.

      Not before time, someone is actually going to point a finger, earmarking culpability aimed at those who caused matters to further deteriorate in the aftermath of the second Iraqi conflict ‘Shock and Awe’ – designating blame, putting it at the door of other senior figures in the Bliar tyranny.

      Step forwards great friend of Iran, social engineer nonpareil, cultural Marxist with a capital M is one – Jack Straw.

      Then as you (kids of dads in the ZANU scum party) – do, in order to facilitate climbing up the greasy poll and yup, to open doors – in this instance, using a fatherly name drop, may not be such a fantastic idea.

    The other side is even more disturbing; a red bar across the card bearing the imperative message:

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION: THE EU REFERENDUM
    PLEASE READ AND KEEP UNTIL THURSDAY 23RD JUNE”

    On a rather lighter note, I’m slightly baffled by the oddly specific quote from Cathy Warwick;
    “Staying in is better for the NHS, better for women and better for midwives.”

    While this would be appropriate in a speech at a midwifery conference, in the general context of this mass-produced leaflet it calls to mind ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’, when Slartibartfast tells Arthur that the destruction of the Earth was utterly infuriating for the mice.

      Hitchhikers, was an odyssey:

      “A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.”

      Now, I never leave home without one, you never know if you’re going on a space journey and lets face it………………………… there are so many space cadets around.
      Cathy Warwick is a space cadet weapons grade – “we’re all about abortion!” – someone needs to tell her – what midwifery is all about.

    Martin Lewis is a highly respected financial guru. To use his picture and quote out of context to manipulate voters is fraud. Can anyone make a complaint in time to make Straw have to place front page ads and on TV that this was done without permission, I was seriously thrown by reading this because it made me wonder about Martin Lewis’s integrity. It will influence a lot of his followers to vote Remain. UK is becoming a laughing stock, a banana republic.

    Using financial guru Martin Lewis photo and quoting out of context without permission to mislead voters is fraud. Can he be prosecuted? Be made to publish a disclaimer before June 23? I was misled and was going to change from Leave to Remain until I found a news item that Martin Lewis had not sanctioned this.

      It’s a case of how can we get that to them to start proceedings? I’ve sometimes sent things to UKIP and know they were passed on but with that lot – not a great chance. Until after June 23rd of course.
