HOW sad it was to see on social media the Redcar Brexit candidate saying, “I won’t fight for my seat.” The story on the Redcar constituency Brexit candidate Jacqui Cummins saying she won’t actively fight to win the seat due to the attacks she has had whilst out campaigning.

Whilst I am not a supporter of Brexit it is shocking that any candidate standing for public office should have to undergo any such type of attack as outlined on the social media site. What will frustrate many Brexit voters is that those who voted via post cannot look to change their vote as a result of Jacqui Cummins the Brexit candidate for Redcar actively standing down just before polling day.

Having been involved in many political campaigns over decades this is the worst election campaign ever.

The lack of truth from the political parties is breath-taking.
