News has reached us today that the British National Party (BNP) candidate who hoped to be standing for election in Peterborough has failed to get the required (10) nominations to stand for election on May 6th.
The BNP Candidate for Peterborough was to be Dave Strickson, but it seems he couldn’t raise the tiny number of 10 people to nominate him to be able to qualify to stand in the 2010 General Election. The BNP doesn’t appear to be standing any candidates on May 6th for Peterborough Council either, you can read the full list of prospective candidates for election on May 6th here.
This latest failure to gain enough nominations only adds to a dismal 2010 for the BNP, whom have also failed to get enough nominations to stand a mayoral candidate in Hackney on top of gaining just 2,236 votes across the United Kingdom during 2010 in council by-elections of which the BNP have stood candidates in 12 of those elections.
