Cheeky Jeremy Corbyn supporters are attempting to drum up votes by printing leaflets which say “Stormzy says vote Labour”.
The leaflet, handed out in Croydon, south London, claims the Tories hold 165 votes adding that “even you’re dad’s got more Facebook friends”.
It was shared by Labour activists thousands of times on social media but Labour campaign bosses say they were not involved in the creation or distribution of the flyer.
Labour’s Sarah Jones lost out on the Croydon Central seat by 165 votes in the 2015 election to sitting MP Gavin Barwell and is this year the seat is the fourth tightest in the country.
The leaflet, which features a picture of Stormzy, said: “The Tories hold Croydon by 165 votes, that’s literally it.
“Even your dad’s got more Facebook friends.
“Stormzy says: Vote Labour.”
The tongue-in-cheek flyer comes after pollsters claimed Labour would win the election if only young people voted.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
