Described in a derisory tone by our media, the so called ‘Far Right Candidate’ accused of racism, sexism and ‘homophobia’ (whatever that means) has won a landslide victory to become president.
The by-election is due to take place on February 23. Eligible voters have until midnight on February 7 to register in time to take part in the by-election.
Labour retained the seat in 2015 with a majority of 5,175 over UKIP with the Conservatives a further 33 votes behind. Labour has held the seat since its creation in 1950.
