Listen slide, the new Tory MP for the High Peak has spent the last 6 weeks smearing and throwing mud at the Labour candidate, Ruth George. I'm not a Labour supporter, but she was a brilliant, hard working MP, who was great for the local area and fought Universal Credit with a passion. The Tory didn't debate her, but just told everyone she was an anti-semite, a racist, etc.
The vast majority of their ilk inhabit the gutter - and guess what? His snide and nasty campaign worked, as he squeaked home by 500 votes.
