Those possible Haltemprice & Howden candidates in full

Labour and the Liberal Democrats may not be standing, but there could still be a colourful list of candidates on the ballot paper at Haltemprice & Howden.

The Birmingham Post reports:

Earlier this week, stallholder Eamonn Fitzpatrick, 58, from Northampton, said he would show rival candidates “what politics is all about” by contesting the seat.

Miss Great Britain Gemma Garrett has also announced her interest, asking whether Mr Davis was “a little crazy” to give up his seat for something she described as “a little bit trivial”.

Another potential candidate is the political writer Neil Glass, who has promised to donate half his MP’s salary to charity if elected.

Blackpool pub landlord Hamish Howitt, 55, who is an anti-smoking ban campaigner, is promising to stand up for working class smokers, while the Cleethorpes-based Generalist Party and The Official Monster Raving Loony Party have also announced their intention to field candidates.

And to think people thought that David Davis hadnt started a circus with his little adventure...the descision by both the main parties not to stand has stopped this being a major debate; with no liberal opponent of 42 days and no actual proponent of 42 days where is the choice for the electorate??

All Progressives should Vote for the Green Party candidate, opposed to 28 days as well as 42.

Davis is no Libertarian!
