On THURSDAY 31st JULY the British Democratic Party is contesting a Charnwood Borough Council by-election in Thurmaston Village, Leicestershire. Local resident CHRIS CANHAM is our candidate. The ward is located just outside the boundary of the City of Leicester, comprising around 4,000 properties and is represented by three councillors.
The vacancy has arisen, ten months before full council elections next May, as a result of the unexpected resignation of one of the three Conservative councillors.
The five candidates in this election are: Hanif Asmal (Conservative), Chris Canham (British Democrats), Steven Denham (BNP), Tom Prior (UKIP) and Ralph Raven (Labour).
Local members have delivered an A4 full-colour glossy leaflet to each household, which addresses Council plans to impose a 4,500 home building development in green fields adjoining Thurmaston village, for the intended accommodation of Leicester City’s burgeoning immigration-fuelled population.
A final push is being made to deliver a second colour leaflet, and a supplementary A5 black & white leaflet, before polling takes place on Thursday 31st July.
This is a chance for the party to establish itself in an area which has historically been good for patriotic politics.
If you live in the vicinity and are able to give our valiant candidate Chris a helping hand with the final stage of his election campaign, then please phone or text him on 07513 975 408 – thank you.
Kevan Stafford, Election Agent
