Ajmal Masroor, the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate in Bethnal Green and Bow, has a glossy election leaflet that uses words innovatively. Under the heading "Lib Dem Factfile" it summarises the party's national policies, including:

We will end the war in Afghanistan and bring our troops home from Iraq.

Do you think that the average voter in Tower Hamlets would deduce from this that Lib Dem policy is to support the British military presence in Afghanistan, to "end the war" by winning it, and that British troops have already been brought home from Iraq?

Question to Which the Answer is No
, number 275.
