Richard Benyon is Conservative MP for Newbury.
In 2010, with the election scheduled for Thursday 6th May, the Conservatives were panicking, as they were confronted by the very real likelihood of a hung parliament.
Panic, it seems, drove them into an unlawful device: The Liar Flyer. Richard Benyon unwisely had one put through my door on the 4th or 5th May. I emailed him 5th; he did not reply. Later I received a triumphant newsletter, by email, hence the wording of mine, 18th June. Benyon then responded to my pressure by annotating (facetiously and fallaciously) as Exhibit 1a, thus setting a benchmark for ‘Benyon Truth’ (and Benyon contempt) that voters would do well to register.
