BNP announce Parliamentary Candidate for Buckingham

The BNP has announced its Buckingham candidate for the 2010 General Election, adding another candidate to a slate which already includes UKIP, John Stevens (former Lib Dem member and before that, Conservative MEP,) Patrick Phillips (“conservatively minded” Independent candidate) and Geoff Howard (former Conservative and UKIP member).

With the three main parties refraining from standing against the Speaker, it will be interesting to see how the vote is split by the minor parties and independents, all of whom have or have had right-wing leanings.

The Liberal Democrats have chosen a spokesperson rather than a candidate.

From the Buckingham Advertiser:

The British National Party has nominated one of its members, Adam Worley, to stand for the Buckingham seat in the next general election.

Mr Worley works in the medical equipment manufacturing industry and has studied at college and university.

He will be joining Speaker John Bercow, UKIP candidate Nigel Farage and independent candidates to vie for the seat.

  • Here in the US “has studied at …” is a euphemism for failed to get a qualification. One wonders …..

  • Are the LPUK standing?

    LPUK haven’t announced a candidate for Buckingham.

    Should the main parties campaign on behalf of the speaker? It seems to me that these minor parties are campaigning against parliament itself. That’s fair enough, but this speaker seems rather better than the last, and doesn’t deserve to take the brunt.

  • The blighters! Fancy splitting the fascist loon vote!

    So you have a choice between BNP, UKIP, Independent Conservative #1, Independent Conservative #2, and Ex-Conservative Speaker Seeking Re-election. What an amazing array of choice for the people of Buckingham!

  • You should have a look at all the choices right-whingers have got in Stoke-on-Trent Central if you like that kind of thing. Mind you, it only guarantees an even heavier Labour victory so we shouldn’t be laughing.

  • @Helen Duffett: ‘it will be interesting to see how the vote is split by the minor parties and independents, all of whom have or have had right-wing leanings’

    As someone within the Buckingham constituency, I don’t think ‘interesting’ is the most appropriate word here – it’s a pretty rubbish position to be in for those of us who would never vote for the Right but are not being given any alternatives other than abstinence.

    I’ve been checking out the main parties’ websites to try to figure out how to use my vote; the impression I’ve been left with is not much more than passive interest at best and apathy at worst …

    He is the worst speaker EVER! Hope he gets defeated
