SNP candidates Stewart Hosie and Chris Law are being ridiculed by leaflets which are being left around Dundee City centre. Stewart Hosie is standing for re-election in Dundee East and Chris Law is hoping to be re-elected in Dundee West.

Some of the leaflets have been tweeted over the last few days:

Chris Law has hit out at the 'daft' and 'childish' leaflets. Chris Law commented:

“I’m sure I’ve had worse things said to me at public meetings or hustings than some daft stickers on a bus stop or lamp-post.”
Another flyer said to have been left in a Dundee car park has an image of Mr Law, also with tick boxes next to words including “financial irregularities (but not enough evidence for a charge)”.

The investigation centred around the Spirit of Independence organisation, which he founded as a campaign vehicle ahead of the 2014 referendum.Chris Law toured Scotland in a blue converted fire engine. It is thought Chris Law raised in the region of £30,000 whilst campaigning and delivering leaflets.

The investigation has now concluded with the outcome described as: 'insufficient evidence' to take the matter any further.

Stewart Hosie has also been in the spotlight over the last few days after being spotted on the campaign trail with 'mistress' Serena Cowdy.

Both Stewart Hosie and Chris Law hold comfortable majorities in their respective constituencies.
