    Default Political candidates who use the letters "TD" in their posters/literature. Is this allowed?

    It's the oldest trick in the book. . . Election candidates using the letters "TD" in their posters. Hint: You elected me before.

    But are they allowed for when DE is dissolved shortly there are no TDs for the duration of the campaign.

    My view is that election candidates should be fined for each poster and their posters subsequently taken down if they use the letters "TD" on their posters/literature.

    gives us an example of a election poster that did that, my impression is this is applied far stricter in the UK then here, what the law or regulations on it?

    It's been going on since the letters "TD" were invented to indicate our elected representatives. . .

    Unless it's in the rules that they can't accurately identify themselves as a TD why should they be fined? Are you saying they're breaking rules or that you want the rules changed?

    If you want them changed: Why shouldn't a TD identify themselves as such and allow their record speak for/against them?
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    Because they're not a TD for the duration of the campaign.

    Don't they remain TDs until the actual formation of a new government.
