English Democrat Liverpool mayor candidate falls foul of the FA by using Three Lions on leaflet
A LIVERPOOL mayor candidate is to be given a dressing down by the Football Association for using the Three Lions in his election material.
English Democrat Paul Rimmer used the famous symbol in his address sent out in an official Liverpool council election leaflet.
A spokesman for the FA said: "We will be contacting the individual involved and ask them to refrain from using the logo."
Mr Rimmer insisted he had done nothing wrong.
"The Three Lions are an ancient 12th century symbol of the Holy Trinity.
"They belong to the ancient people of England not the FA."
