We all make mistakes.

Last year, Paul Tilsley went to the police when a Labour leaflet appeared in Hodge Hill without the usual small print - 'Printed and published by....' as required by s110 of the Representation of the People Act.

This year, Liberal Democrat candidates in South Yardley and Sheldon have both put out expensive, glossy leaflets, replete with photographs of them pointing at things and standing beside other things. Some of the pictures even include a lesser-spotted Vince Cable, the increasingly pointless Secretary of State, being shown things that the government hasn't yet worked out how it can sell off or close down.

Sadly, in their eagerness to rely on past performance as a guide to the future (and a matching unwillingness to talk about that future in any detail), the rubric has been missed off.

I trust that Paul will report his colleagues and their agents to the police forthwith.
