Meet the man behind Batley & Spen election con

Neil Humphrey aka ANTI-Corbyn

There’s quite a few candidates standing in this month’s Batley & Spen by-election. The majority of them are right wing chancers, as I have explained hereand here.

In yesterday’s blog I revealed how far-right wally Jack Buckby actually believed he had a chance of winning the seat if it had not been for the intervention of other far-right candidates who have also decided to stand.

The English Democrats- a notoriously silly party built on lies and quashed by lost opportunities, were one of those parties that decided to stand. This was more to keep enflaming the behind the scenes fight they are having with Buckby and his friends in the English Defence League (EDL) spin off and all round shoddy German import, Pegida.

Hardly the Blairite alternative..

The English Dems now also believe they can win the Batley & Spen by-election by employing a false candidate, who has given his name as ‘Anti Corbyn’, in the hope it takes away Labour voters from the Labour Party candidate, thinking he is some kind of alternative Labour Party candidate.

The man behind the candidate ‘Anti Corbyn’ is in fact English Democrat member Neil Humphrey.

Humphrey has told the electoral commission that it is a name he uses most commonly to identify himself. Such is the wonder of the British electoral system.

The party wally thinks they can win now

Will it work for the English Dems? No, but few parties have wasted more money on lost causes than they have.
