A [UK] pensioner who put up a red, white and blue election poster telling voters to kick out MPs was accused of racism by police.
After being inundated by canvassing politcians, Roy Newman, 74, decided to tell other voters: ‘GET THE LOT OUT.’
But 90 minutes after he put up the homemade sign up in an upstairs room at his house, two police officers arrived and threatened with arrest. (…)
He said : ‘Three years ago vandals put a brick through my window and when I called the police all they offered me was a crime reference number.
‘Put up a poster and a police car with two uniformed officers arrives quick as a flash – it’s unbelievable.’
