Andy Slaughter's campaign has responded to this attack ad, which Shaun Bailey's team released drawing attention to what they believed were his failures as Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council, by releasing an ad of his own.
It draws attention to what the Slaughter team believe to be a key weakness in Bailey's positioning. Namely, that he is not the local candidate that he claims to be.
This last blew up between the two as a result of comments made to this blog, with Bailey telling the Guardian that Slaughter was an "idiot" to make such claims, and warning that "I don't need to prove to him that I'm from Shepherds Bush. If he wants a mud-slinging match he wants to be careful I don't join in."
