A Labour MP has apologised for handing out campaign leaflets promising would-be voters that her party would 'deal with Traveller incursions.'
Shadow women and equalities minister Charlotte Nichols had been delivering leaflets for the Party ahead of local elections in the Orford area of her constituency. Among the promises listed on the leaflet which featured the Labour Party's logo was a pledge to 'deal with Traveller incursions,' causing widespread anger among residents and on social media.
Not, presumably, the residents fed up with the mess and crimr associated with illegal encampments?
Certainly, plenty of the wooly-minded keyboard warriors - like this idiot - weighed in:
She later apologised in a statement for the 'hurt caused' among the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) communities, assuring people it was not in line with her personal views, or that of the party.
So your party won't deal witth traveller incusions? But will promise to on its campaign literature in order to garner votes? I can't see any other way to interpret this...
In an earlier statement following outrage on social media over the leaflet, she said she had not been aware of the 'problematic definition' of incursions, which means a sudden invasion or attack.
A 'sudden invasion' is exactly what they are, and you know it.
