As voters head to the polls today, the Conservatives are hoping their reputation for bin management will trump any concerns over the government's Brexit plans. However, Mr S suspects not all of the Tory literature used will have the desired effect.

In Ilford Town, a leaflet went out to residents listing four reasons to vote for the area's Conservative candidates. Only a printing error meant that these 'reasons' consisted of dummy text – rather than any achievement:

'Three lines of text about what issues/projects/policies you've already fone or are doing or will be doing in your ward/area.'
