"A new undercover investigation has revealed that the Conservative Party may have broken election and data protection rules, urging people to vote for Theresa May under the guise of a phone poll.
A Channel 4 News reporter applied for a job with a secretive call centre in Neath, South Wales, run by a failed Tory council candidate and discovered marketing calls to marginal constituencies implying a vote for Theresa May was a vote for an orderly Brexit.
Workers were given a script to to say that they were from an ‘independent market research company’ of which there appears to be no record. Prohibited numbers were rung, which also is a potential breach of data protection laws. And on the day of the election the call centre workers were told to say that they were calling from the Conservative Party and urge people to vote Tory. Paying people to canvass is against election rules and could result in seats having to be fought again."
