The campaign car of Romford’s Tory candidate Andrew Rosindell has been snapped parked illegally again.

The politician’s emblazoned Land Rover Freelander was seen on the pavement opposite Romford station in South Street yesterday.

The same car, which bears his name in large lettering, was seen parked in a disabled bay in central London in September.

Speaking to the Recorder today, the politician said he didn’t “have the time” to discuss where his car was parked.

“I wasn’t driving the car,” he added. “It’s a campaign vehicle and will be all over the area for the next six weeks, sometimes I’m in it, sometimes I’m not.

“Obsessives will probably be able to see me stopped in places for a few minutes to talk to people. This is regurgitating the same things, it’s a bit silly.”

Today, Ben Cannon took a picture of Mr Rosindell’s Land Rover parked without a permit in the car park of the Harvester in Main Road, Romford – although the politician insisted a ticket was purchased “minutes” later.

“I find it shocking that the lesson hasn’t been learned,” said Ben, who was eating in the pub. “He keeps parking anywhere and gets away with it.”

During the council election campaign last year, a video emerged of Mr Rosindell being grilled by a worker who accused him of “public nuisance” for using a megaphone outside his company’s office. He was parked in the same spot on the pavement opposite Romford station.

The Highway Code states people must not park partially or wholly on the pavement in London.

  • This from a representative of a Party that arrogantly claims superiority in management of the economy. An economy that stagnated for the first 3 years of this Tory government, while they punished the poorest and most vulnerable in our society with their draconian cuts in public spending, increased borrowing by £548 billion, more than the whole of the Labour government's 13 years in office and created more debt than every Labour government in history! Why would he think that the rules observed by normal people would apply to him. The arrogance knows no bounds!
