Despite the controversy surrounding him, Craig Mackinlay is still standing for election in South Thanet.
Recently the Crown Prosecution Service announced it wasn’t going to press charges against any Conservative politicians who were accused of not properly reporting their spending in the 2015 general election due to insufficient evidence to prove any dishonesty.
But in Craig’s case ONLY, the CPS have delayed their decision and now have until Election Day to decide whether to proceed or not. This means he could be arrested any day before then.
In this clip Thanet Watch pays a visit to a Tory canvassing session in Ramsgate town centre and asks one of Craig’s helpers what he thinks about this extraordinary situation.
