People Are Wasting UKIP's Money By Sending Bricks To The Party's Freepost Address
The Eurosceptic party is surging ahead in the polls but its opponents are attempting a form of direct protest. Using, er, the postal service.
Opponents of UKIP are sending hundreds of items, including bricks, to the party's Freepost address in the hope of running up a massive postal bill for the party.
The Royal Mail service enables any member of the public to send anything to an organisation with a Freepost address, with the recipient picking up the bill.
When a similar protest hit Nottinghamshire Lib Dems the police said it was not a crime to send bricks to a Freepost address.
