The Guardian’s Steven Morrison has pointed out this leaflet from the Conservatives in Eastleigh today, which undeniably seeks to confuse voters by using UKIP colours.
It clearly demonstrates a few things. Firstly, that the Conservatives are extremely worried about the UKIP performance tonight.
Secondly, that the Tories think nothing of trying to deceive the voters in a desperate bid to avoid humiliation in Eastleigh.
It is quite frankly shocking form. I have a feeling though that despite putting forward a Tory candidate that pretty much espouses UKIP’s platform (and now nicking the party’s colours), the public are not going to be mugged by deceit either tonight or in the long term.
The Conservative campaign in Eastleigh should be ashamed.
