To the person who says you can’t electioneer on election day …

” … restrictions, spelled out in the Ofcom code, apply to all broadcasters including the BBC, Sky, Channel 4 and ITV. They apply to community radio stations, music channels, and political panel shows alike.

However, these rules actually don’t apply to newspapers – as you’d probably guess by the fact that national papers can actually call on their readers to vote for particular parties.”

“Silent periods have also been considered for online political advertising. The UK currently bans ‘political advertisements’ from TV or radio; parties are instead given limited airtime for party political broadcasts. Conversely, print media ads, for example, posters or newspapers, whose principal function is to influence voters in elections or referendums are exempt from these rules, and are not subject to any black-out period.”

Owlis not advertising and, if it helps, feel free to onsider East Devon Watch as an online newspaper.

Vote, vote vote

REMEMBER – a vote for ANY other candidate ib East Devon is a gifted vote to the Conservatives.

CLAIRE WRIGHT – a warrior for everyone in East Devon protecting the NHS, the environment, education, young and old, rich or poor. Cut her political teeth in the scandal-strewn Tory EDDC and forced them to bring the scandals into the light. Stands for a fair confirmatory vote on Brexit.

WHY not others?

Jupp – Swire clone, Dominic Raab protege, parachuted in one month ago because there was no suitable Tory in East Devon – frit like Boris Johnson, too scared to attend all hustings, surrounded by minders, unavailable to anyone who wasn’t carefully chosen for photo opportunities! Was a remainer, now conveniently a Brexiter.

Rylance: vote Rylance, have no choice about Brexit because her yellow Tory Boss will cancel Article 50. The same boss who voted enthusiastically with Tories in coalition – voted & times for bedroom tax, for the Health and Social Care Act 2012 that accelerated privatisation of the NHS and for unsupervised funding to greedy academy schools.

The others: no chance in East Devon, ever.

Still wavering? “Boris Johnson pulls out of another BBC interview on day before election”

“Boris Johnson has ducked out of another high-profile interview as the general election vote looms, it has been claimed.

The prime minister’s team had told BBC Radio 2 he would “very likely” sit for an interview with Jeremy Vine, but on Wednesday backed away from the idea, the broadcaster said in a tweet.

Mr Vine tweeted: “Boris Johnson has refused to follow the other six leaders who have taken part in the leader interviews @BBCRadio2.

“His staff constantly told my producers – until this morning – that he was ‘very likely’ to come on. Today we were told he couldn’t, and no reason was given.”

The claim came less than a week after Mr Johnson was lambasted live on air by Andrew Neil, the BBC’s attack-dog interviewer who he had snubbed previously….”
