ELECTION: Helen Grant targeted in 'Tories kill the poor' vandalism slur

Saturday 30th November 2019



A CONSERVATIVE general election hoarding has been vandalised with a crude message scibbled in dripping red spray paint.

The site near Staplehurst, in support of the Maidstone and the Weald Tory candidate Helen Grant, now reads: "Conservatives kill the poor."

Mrs Grant was unavailable for comment.

But a witness, who drove past the hoarding today said: "It's horrible. The red spray paint is meant to look like blood and it does.

"Whatever anyone think about any of the parties in the general election, this is not acceptable. I am sure Mrs Grant would be upset to see it."
