Above The Law

Richard Langridge should know better. He has been a Conservative councillor in Witney for years. Now he stands as an independent for the Witney North ward in the District Council elections.

The Electoral Commission insists that no election placards are erected on public land and that all must carry an imprint. These are the little words saying who printed the thing, who authorised it and where they can be found. The LibDems often consider themselves above this aspect of the law, but the Tories are punctilious. Perhaps Langridge is making some sort of point.
