I just read the latest Lenny Henry stuff about a Ukip candidate, however a very serious issue has been missed by the Media regarding the Registered Parties.
Voters in Weetwood will be faced with an alphabetical list of parties to vote for, that gives an obvious advantage to those at the top of the list. The obvious solution to this scandal is to randomize the list, like in other organoizations I know like the Co-operative.
This is the party order expected to be on ballot paper.
1) An Independence from Europe
2) British National Party
3) Conservative Party
4) English Democrats
5) Green Party
6) Labour Party
7) Liberal Democrats
9) UK Independence Party (UKIP)
10) Yorkshire First
This seems very unfair and it looks like people could be confused between the “An Independence from Europe” and “UK Independence Party (UKIP)
Also with different voting systems for concurrent Euro and Council ballots, there could be a lot of spoiled papers?
There are no independent Euro candidates for Weetwood and some of the party ones are a long way off.
According to the nomination list I have read the record appears to be by a Yorkshire First candidate called Richard Carter and lives at Gamlehagen 7, 1151 Oslo, Norway.
