Interesting line-up for Oldham *Updated*

This is the list of candidates for the Oldahm by-election:
  • Debbie Abrahams (Labour)
  • Derek Adams (British National Party)
  • Kashif Ali (Conservative)
  • Peter Allen (Green Party)
  • David Bishop (Bus-Pass Elvis Party)
  • The Flying Brick (Monster Raving Loony Party)
  • Loz Kaye (Pirate Party of the United Kingdom)
  • Stephen Morris (English Democrats)
  • Paul Nuttall MEP (UK Independence Party)
  • Elwyn Watkins (Liberal Democrats)

Does anyone have money on The Flying Brick? Sounds more like a boozer than a bloke ;-)

Here's the odds if you're interested:

Labour  1/16  
Liberal Democrats  7/1  
Conservatives  66/1  
UKIP  100/1  
BNP  100/1    
Green  100/1    
English Democrats  200/1    
Pirate Party  500/1    
Monster Raving Loony Party  1000/1    
Bus-Pass Elvis Party  1000/1 

What I don't understand is, if the Bus-Pass Elvis party can field a candidate, where is the Libertarian party?
I would be disappointed if I lived in Oldham right now.


I was going to publish the results but they are here.

82% of people did not vote for Labour. Hence Labour victory. That's democracy in action for you.

And the reasons for no Libertarian candidate can be found here in answer to a question posed by The Angry Exile.

Long live democracy! Long live the State!
