Harrowgate Hill by-election result

Paul Thompson – England First Party candidate at the Harrowgate Hill ward by-election for Darlington Borough Council on 12th April – polled 47 votes (3.0%).  This was the first EFP campaign in the ward, and the by-election followed the conviction of a senior Labour councillor for sexual abuse of an under-age girl.  The circumstances of the by-election led to an anti-Labour protest vote benefiting the Conservatives, who gained what had recently been a marginal ward.

This made it difficult for parties other than Labour or Conservative to make an impact here, but Paul and his team deserve congratulations for introducing the English nationalist cause to Harrowgate Hill voters and building a foundation for future campaigns across Darlington.
