English Democrat Thérèse Hirst standing at Batley. July 1st.Mon 8:05 pm Europe/London, 7 Jun 2021 8
Thérèse Hirst/English Democrats got their nomination in by the 7th June deadline.
There are an astonishing 16 candidates in total after the Greens pulled their candidate (Ross Peltier) when some historic (2014 – 2018) and highly controversial tweets came to light which have upset the LGBT brigade. The Greens also stated that not standing would reduce the chance of a Conservative win and gain of the seat.
I think tactical voting will play a VERY big part in this by-election in order to give Keir Starmer a bloody nose and get rid of him. Choosing/persuading Jo Cox’s sister to stand could seriously backfire.
What is Starmer doing there as Labour Leader anyway when he has only been in Parliament since 2015? Ridiculous or what?
My money is on George Galloway snatching it by a narrow margin and all of the fringe candidates losing their deposits. I expect only Labour Co-op and Tories to hold onto their deposits coming in 2nd and 3rd.
There is still no update on Wiki of the latest (and final) list of candidates. from Aldous

G’day Tap. I forgot to mention that I’m expecting most of the Asian (Indian) and Muslim vote to go to George Galloway’s Workers Party and not to Labour and Kim Leadbeater. It will be nothing personal to Kim Leadbeater but very personal towards Keir Starmer who I strongly suspect they despise. Free-thinking traditional Labour and Tory voters may sense an opportunity of a lifetime to deliver a ‘death blow’ (no pun or offence intended Jo Cox RIP) to the Keir Starmer Labour Leader great pretender.
Strewth! Just look at those awful shoes! The suit and tie are equally unforgivable. I’ve seen better garb on a Carpetbagger.
Starmer is a very nasty piece of work, total fraud and miscreant of the first order.
I reckon he would slit his own mother’s throat or castrate his own father if it would further his own pathetic virtue signalling career in politics.
Let’s be honest and blunt, he has almost certainly genitally mutilated his son without prior consent (from him) by having him circumcised?
Think about that. What a horrific act to perform (without any anaesthesia) on a new-born infant barely out of its mother’s womb.
And Jesus wept.
Starmer stands out as one of the most odious characters at Westminster. That in itself is quite an achievement. I am sure mass murder would be his favourite hobby.
I think what may cost George Galloway a lot of votes is he’s fallen for the Covid nonsense and the need for the jab. Not only that, but at the beginning of the scamdemic he tweeted that if you think it’s all fake then unfollow him. For such an astute man as he I thought that rather silly, perhaps even leaning towards authoritarian, but I don’t do twitter though I do read some sites. After that comment I hardly bother with George now, to the point that recently one his new party’s emails ended up in my spam filter, and rather than read it I binned it from there. I never thought George Galloway would become spam to me but there you go.
I completely lost any belief I had in Galloway for exactly the same reason but over other concerns. He seems to have very strict views on what his followers can think. I only liked him because of his beautiful attack on the US senate regarding the Iraq war. Possibly that was a psyop to enable him to gather some rebel disciples and lead them up the Swannie . That Jordan Peterson strikes me as similar. He’s now really keen to get everyone vaccinated.
Whilst there is probably some good in Galloway (standing by his beliefs, supporting Palestine, anti-war etc), I think he is controlled opposition as he follows the mainstream view on 9/11, COVID etc
Disappointing not to see a Reform party candidate standing
Farage is into selling investments nowadays. He made £6 million from the Brexit party which was a limited company.
