Local election candidates named

A FULL list of candidates standing in Manchester’s local elections on Thursday 5 May has now been published – including just four from the British National Party.

Voters are going to the polls on Thursday 5 May to elect one councillor in each of Manchester City Council’s 32 wards, plus an additional councillor to fill a further vacancy in Burnage.

The British National Party has candidates standing in Charlestown (Stephen Moran), Harpurhey (Peter Brown), Miles Platting and Newton Heath (Joseph Cegla) and Moston (John O’Shaughnessy).

In the city centre, five candidates will stand: John Bridges (LibDem), Ken Dobson (Independent), Michael Liffen (Conservative), Kevin Peel (Labour/Co-op) and Joanne Wilkes.

Why focus on a party that is absolutely insignificant in this city, has never been able to make any impact and is completely irrelevant to the people of Manchester?

Sadly its not irrelevant Smitty, as they have candidates standing in the local area.

However, we think its a positive thing that they are almost an insignificance, and it's testament to the people of Manchester that they don't really get a look in, even in times of financial and political disillusionment.

If AV is voted in then they would become very significant indeed.

The BNP are against AV. Mainly, i suspect, because they are too thick to understand it but also because it would mean the would struggle to get the same amount of councillors as they do now.

AV would probably mean more Green MPs too.

No thanks.

One is enough. She's a big fan of expensive fuel and all sorts of bossy measures.

How long until the Daily Star backed EDL starts standing for election. Don't quite have the same Nazi baggage as the BNP, to those with an untrained eye anyway.
