England First Party campaign update – local elections 2007

EFP campaign update - local elections 2007Campaigning is now underway in 5 of the 6 wards we are contesting. Every ward we are fighting has now been completely leafleted or is close to being fully leafleted. Our first report is from the Cliviger with Worsthorne ward where our Chairman Steven Smith is standing. He has been leafleting the ward with his helpers regularly for nearly 12 months. The first election leaflet was distributed round the whole ward last week and the second leaflet is currently being compiled. Steven faces competition from 6 other candidates: Labour, Liberal Democrat, Conservative, BNP, Green Party and an Independent.

In Kevin Shaw’s ward, Mill Hill, which is in Blackburn, the ward has now been leafleted twice in the lead up to the election. There are encouraging signs that there is strong support for Kevin and a local tradesman has even placed a ‘Vote England First Party’ poster in his window. In Kevin’s ward he faces competition from Labour, Liberal Democrat, Conservative and the BNP. Kevin is the only candidate who lives in the ward and he feels this puts him in good stead with the voters.

EFP campaign update - local elections 2007In Clitheroe, Paul Frankland is contesting the Primrose ward. There are 5 wards in the scenic Ribble Valley town which is dominated by the castle which dates back to the 12th century. Paul faces competition from two Conservative candidates and two Liberal Democrat councillors. Clitheroe only holds elections every four years and there are two seats up for grabs. The whole ward was leafleted earlier this year and the first election leaflet was delivered to every house just last week. His second leaflet has now been printed and folded and is ready for distribution which will be later this week.

Steady progress is being made in Higher Croft, another ward located in Blackburn. Just over half of the ward has been leafleted. The ward is 96% white as per the 2001 census figures. It is situated in the South East of the town and is made up of terraced housing, new modern estates and old council housing. The candidate is Ian Lofthouse and he faces competition from Labour, Liberal Democrat and Conservative.
