Carlos Cortiglia

Details of the candidates who are to stand in the London Mayoral election and the Greater London Authority have been announced today.

Seven candidates in total will fight it out to become London Mayor, including the BNP’s very own Carlos Cortiglia. More about Carlos can be read here.

A notable absentee from the list of candidates was Tess Culnane for the National Front, despite the fact that the NF announced they would be fighting the mayoral elections “Like never before” on their website back in February.

Also announced was the GLA list of London-wide candidates.

Heading the list for the BNP is the BNP’s London organiser Steve Squire aka Steve Mendoza.

Next on the list for the BNP are: Dave Furness, Paul Sturdy, Carlos Cortiglia, John Clark, Robert Taylor, Giuseppe De Santis, Donna Treanor, Roberta Woods, Marie Nicholas and John Rowland Broks.

Standing for the National Front is Tess Culnane, Ian Edward and Andrew Cripps.

A couple of names on the English Democrats list raise an eyebrow, Benjamin Weald is a regular attendee for the EDL and March for England and Michael Barnbrook, the former BNP activist and self proclaimed “sleazebuster”.

As of yet only 6 of the 14 constituencies in the London Assembly have announced candidates.

In Ealing & Hillingdon, David Furness will stand for the BNP, while NF chairman Ian Edward will stand for the National Front.

Enfield & Haringey see Marie Nicholas standing for the BNP

Greenwich & Lewisham has Roberta Woods representing the BNP and her one time BNP colleague Tess Culnane representing the NF.

Havering and Redbridge has the veteran anti Semite Richard Edmonds standing for the NF with Robert Taylor standing for the BNP.

Standing in the Goresbrook Ward, Taylor will also be the BNP’s candidate in the forthcoming Barking & Dagenham By Election to be held on April 19th.
