    Shame you've already done this, I'd like to ask Ms Bunting what her thoughts are on the literature her campaign team sent out in Hungerford last night, which was quite literally a fake newspaper called 'Newbury & West Berks News' delivering fake news about her campaign and about the Tories, portraying a NewburyToday online poll- which could've easily been rigged- as a 'real' poll. If you're reading, do you think intentionally miseleading voters is ethical, Ms Bunting?

      Is this not a question for NWN? It's s public poll in the local newspaper. What would you recommend instead?

        Not exactly a good barometer considering anyone from anywhere can vote multiple times, is it? Besides the point, the Lib Dems distributing literal fake news is despicable.

          Sounds like you are more upset by a poll that has LibDem in the lead rather than the leaflet. Maybe your preconceived views on the outcome are wrong.

    Still amazing that people in Newbury are willing to vote for Benyon when his party is going to devastate the local economy, turning Newbury into little more than a dormitory town. You only need to look at how many empty shops there are in Newbury to know that Benyon and his chums aren't good for the local economy.

      Tories looking out for themselves and their business partners at the expense of communities and the members of society we should be protecting... standard operating procedure. I don't trust any of the parties myself, but anything has to be better than lining the pockets of the rich as we currently are, I'm willing to give any other party a chance at turning things around at this point, all I know is, my tick will NOT be in a tory box (not that it ever has been, but that's another matter).
