UKIP LAUNCHES HARD-HITTING NEW ROTHERHAM POSTER
UKIP has launched a hard-hitting poster that criticises Labour for the Rotherham child abuse scandal in which 1,400 children were abused between 1997 and 2013.
The poster, which forms part of the campaign for Jack Clarkson, UKIP’s candidate in the forthcoming South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner election, depicts a distraught girl and reads “There are 1,400 reasons why you should not trust Labour again.”
The Rotherham scandal was revealed in a report in August, with the town’s Labour-run administration largely blamed for ignoring that scale of the abuse for years. The subsequent public outcry eventually led to South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright resigning, thus forcing a by-election to replace him on 30 October.
