BNP set to stand against their former leader

It seems that the gloves are off in Stoke Central as the BNP appear to have confirmed that they will stand a candidate against Alby Walker, the former leader of the BNP group on the council, who broke from the party earlier this year.

The BNP general election campaign was left in disarray when Walker announced his decision to stand as an independent candidate in Stoke Central on the morning that the party’s deputy leader Simon Darby was launching his campaign for the same seat.

After mulling over how much to antagonise Walker, the BNP appear to have decided to fight the Abbey Green ward in the council elections, where Walker is up for re-election in May.

Unfortunately there continue to be major and quite public splits in the local Labour Party so while it is fun to see the right divided this election is totally unpredictable.
