Er... Really?

Chicken Yoghurt has been blogging the progress of the election in the Brighton and Hove area; apparently, he has received an interesting election leaflet.
Here in super-marginal Hove and Portslade, in a poorly photocopied ‘personal’ GENERAL ELECTION 2010 letter from the incumbent New Labour candidate Celia Barlow, she tell me…
If the Tories are to form the next Government, they know they have to win here and they are spending huge amounts of money from the tax evading Tory Peer Lord Ashcroft, to try and buy the votes they need.

Um... Now, we all know that Lord Ashcroft's tax status is a little... er... opaque, but surely accusing him of tax evasion—a criminal offence—is... well... libel? Let us hope, for Celia's sake, that Chicken Yoghurt has misrepresented her words.

Or that Lord Ashcroft has more of a sense of humour than Wiggy's employers...
