Angela Rayner on the Labour Party reporting Tory mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey to the CPS for fraudulent leaflets

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader and Party Chair, commenting on the Labour Party reporting Tory mayoral candidate, Shaun Bailey, to the CPS for fraudulent leaflets, said:  

“The Tory Mayoral candidate has been caught out repeatedly attempting to mislead Londoners. He seems determined to insult voters’ intelligence by bringing discredited Donald Trump style fake news to London.

“He has consistently misled over TfL finances, the congestion charge and council tax, and his latest leaflets are literally a work of fiction. Fake news, fake polls and fake leaflets will not only reflect badly on him and the Conservative Party but erode trust in politics.

“The Conservative Party must immediately apologise for the actions of their London Mayoral campaign and demonstrate that they are committed to following the law.”
