BACK to that email asking for legal advice from Conservative councillor Andrew Marshall, the one where he raised concerns about candidates using pictures of impartial police in their election literature. Recap: he asked the borough solicitor.
One area I have complained about before is around police constables who are persuaded to pose for a photo with councillors/campaigners and then appear on campaign literature. Such public sector staff are not contracted to the Council, but frankly exploiting them in this way is surely close to bringing the Council into disrepute. Can you advise?
I thought about his sensible words again when I saw this election handout from the Back Boris team today.
