Tory candidate suspended over vote-winning allegations
A Conservative candidate at the general election has been suspended over allegations he schemed with the English Defence League (EDL) to win votes.
The Mail on Sunday reported Afzal Amin plotted to persuade the EDL to announce a march against a new "mega-mosque" in Dudley North and then to scrap it and take credit for defusing the situation.
The EDL told the BBC Mr Amin wanted them "to set up a fake demonstration".
