Welwyn Hatfield UKIP candidate slams Tory poster vandals
WELWYN Hatfield UKIP candidate David Platt has condemned the vandals that have been spotted tearing down Conservative Party election posters in the run up to May 6.
Mr Platt spoke out following last week’s story in the Welwyn Hatfield Times, in which we reported that posters had been ripped down across the borough and dumped.
Welwyn Hatfield Conservative agent Benedict McAleenan branded the vandals’ behaviour as “tacky, illegal and anti-democratic” and urged opposition parties to condemn their actions.
Mr Platt said this week: “I stand with the Conservatives on condemning the posters being torn down.
“Anyone that practices this has no respect for democracy.”

He added: “Democracy is something we need to hold dear to us and defend on all levels.”
Mr Platt said his campaign team would remain vigilant and would not hesitate to photograph anyone spotted tearing down posters.
