Greens make official complaint about 'fake' Green leaflet from LibDems in Oxford West & Abingdon

A LibDem leaflet is being circulated around Oxford West and Abingdon which is designed to look and feel like  an official  Green Party communication.

It quotes former Green Parliamentary Candidate Chris Goodall in a manner which voters are led to believe represents an official Green Party position. It does not.

The Green Party have had no involvement in the letter and are standing a strong candidate, Larry Sanders, in the hope of unseating the Tory encumbent.

Says a Green Party spokesperson: "This type of misleading campaigning is the reason why trust in politicians is being eroded. Last time people elected LibDems - they got a Tory-led coalition. People are looking for real change which wont come about through voting LibDem."

The Greens are making an official complaint to the electoral returning officer.
