The Fib Dems have come up with a novel excuse over why they are unable to pit out leaflets to correct wrong information they issued about Plaid Cymru’s stance on Brexit because doing so could put them over their election spending limit.
Which begs the question just how much have the Fib Dems spent in Ceredigion.
I have received yet another Labour leaflet delivered by post for the Pontypridd Constituency bringing up yhose from that Party to six and I am not even living in a marginal seat.
“We received reports from a number of our members and supporters that the same lie was repeated on leaflets they received from the Lib Dems after Mark Williams’ apology.
“While it has been put to the Lib Dems that they should make up for what has happened by sending out leaflets that correct the lie, they have not done that.”
“The local campaign in Ceredigion sees all campaign material originated locally, but national material like the Facebook advert and leaflets which criticised Plaid over Brexit was not seen by Mark or his team.”Which leads me to another question "National Material" I believe is not counted entirely as constituency expenditure.
But what does "National" mean in this case is it UK expenditure or Welsh expenditure.
After all "Welsh" Labour have been conducting a Semi -Nationalist campaign in Wales are they then counted separately from the London led campaign .
Can it mean that "Welsh" Labour could have a bigger percentage pot fighting forty seats as the UK party can spend less in parts of England and maybe Scotland putting up paper candidates who campaign on a shoe string.
The Guide-lines from the electoral Commission are not entirely clear
