There’s a new campaign poster in town, and something tells me Harrow East Mp Tony McNulty isn’t going to like it. That’s because the poster says he is Wanted ‘for Crimes Against Democracy’.
He’s the first MP to be targeted in a campaign launched by pressure group Power2010, which calls for the identification of “the dinosaurs in Parliament who tell us reform isn’t needed, whilst clinging to their perks and privileges”.
McNulty is clearly seen as the T-Rex ofWestminster for his role in the expenses scandal.
Last year the MP resigned from his ministerial post amidst allegations of his abuse of second home allowances and then paid back more than £13,000.
Power 2010 are inviting angry voters to nominate their errant politicians.
They say: “Our aim is for a list of MPs from all major parties who we will then call out for their “crimes against democracy” and launch major campaigns in their constituencies, highlighting their poor record on democratic reform and civil liberties.”
They intend to plaster the Wanted posters around the constituency and target swing voters with leaflets featuring McNulty’s “opposition to a cleaned up reformed politics.”
It’s a stunt guaranteed to get some attention, but whether it will change any minds if a different matter? What do you think, Harrow?
