Andrew Rosindell runs into a spot of bother with his posters

Conservative MP for Romford Andrew Rosindell has again raised doubts about his team’s tactics and ability to run a joined-up campaign.

In March, Left Foot Forward asked Did Rosindell deliver the leaflets he denies approving? – leaflets which included alarmist comments about immigration.

Now the Romford Recorder reports:

Romford’s Tory parliamentary candidate, and sitting MP, has been breaking the rules while canvassing for the May 6 election, says a political opponent.

Andrew Rosindell was accused of fly-posting in Havering-atte-Bower – pinning election posters and placards to trees on the highway without permission – and parking unauthorised with two wheels on the pavement while doing so.

You can see the full story with photo here.

Rosindell has called the incident a “storm in a teacup”, saying that he had posted the placards on private farmland:

It could be that one of two volunteers inadvertently put posters up on the highway. It’s very difficult to know where the highway boundary is and the private farmland starts.

He defended his parking with two wheels on the pavement by saying,

We are allowed to park temporarily for a minute or two before it becomes illegal.

– a theory quickly refuted by Havering Council’s Head of Streetcare:

Parking on the footway is illegal, unless it is in a marked bay. Motorists caught by an enforcement officer will be issued with a ticket.

    Labour let in millions of immigrants, the Lib Dems will let even more in and youc ome down of a guy who opposes these polices in a very childish way – no wonder you are in 3rd place

  • Ray – so your point is that breaking the law is OK as long as the perpetrator agrees with your politics?

  • Ray – Bring back the empire, those were the days close the drawbridge (If you’re a Tory there is a chance you have one!)…

    Have you read our immigration proposals? They’re actually rather sensible, just not populist, which is to our credit as opposed to detriment.
