After losing every seat that they held in the borough, the BNP are now trying to sneak back into Barking and Dagenham.
Defeated candidate Richard Barnbrook has forced his successor's resignation after discovering that she was working for the Council during the elections. The BNP will now attempt to usher Richard back into his old seat on a low turnout.
So what great conflict of interest and public corruption was Ms Couling involved in? And what evil deed has Richard Barnbrook bravely revealed? Oh yes that's right, she was a lollipop lady.
Great work there Richard. Your former constituents must really miss you.
Thanks to GW for the heads-up
