Rochester Conservatives organise fake protest against Mark Reckless

Members of Rochester Conservatives organised a fake protest against Mark Reckless in Rochester yesterday with members falsely claiming to be ordinary residents or representatives of residents groups.

Channel 4 reporter Michael Crick became suspicious of all the people suddenly slagging Reckless off until one Conservative activist let the cat out of the bag and told him they were all Conservatives, including the person claiming to be the chairman of Rochester Residents' Association who said that Reckless is a drunk.

Nigel Farage's opponent in South Thanet, Craig Mackinlay, was also present at this failed attempt to mislead the media and presumably helped to organise it. Prospective MPs usually save the lies and deceit for after they've been elected, Mackinlay seems to be bucking that trend.
