Partisan election leaflets or Stone the Crowe

Anybody hoping to get a good idea about election candidates is going to be bitterly disappointed with the latest ruling of Mr Justice Tugendhat who said that  in an election, statements made about candidates and their associations were “not capable of being understood as anything other than partisan”, reports the BBC.

So in fact we can now count on worst election leaflets to come from all sides involved.

That ruling allows now less clarity, less truth, less facts to be used to win elections and to further deteriorate the content of election leaflets. No truth required, we are all partisans.

But then people keep on asking themselves how it came about that such and such dictator came into power. Of course Justice Tugendhat together with Justice Eady is one of the more colourful judges at the High Court.
