Cool! A new local paper! And it looks nicely produced! Er… But what’s this? It seems to only have advertisements in it for the Conservative Party. And all the stories appear to portray Boris in a good light….
So no, it may walk like a local paper, and quack like a local paper, but it’s actually a political leaflet campaign.
I guess a lot of political parties do this. But the context of handing them out next to The Metro seems incongruous at best, and deceptive at worst.
An don’t you need a license to do thugs like this at a station?
UPDATE: According to the guy behind the ticket desk, they’re supposed to at least “sign in” with him. He says the station master didn’t know anything about it either.
