Lib Dems call for Conservative candidate to donate illegal payment to food banks.

After it was revealed that Stuart Anderson, the Conservative candidate for Wolverhampton South West, took an illegal £54,000 payment from a company the Lib Dems ask how he can be trusted.

Bart Ricketts Lib Dem Parliamentary candidate for Wolverhampton South West said, " Stuart has shown himself to be nothing but a hypocrite, he talks about the need to support small businesses but doesn't care about all the people he harmed when his company was left owing over a quarter of a million pounds. Stuart embodies the 'I'm alright Jack' attitude of the Tories making sure that he got his money.

"I find it frankly insulting that Stuart will talk about going to a food bank after taking such a massive payment for himself when there are people in this city with literally no money because of the party and policies he supports"

"I think Stuart should pay the entire £54,000 to local food banks to try and make amends for this abhorrent behaviour"
