H&D editor polls 16% in Preston election

Mark Cotterill (above right) with winning Labour candidate Anna Hindle were the only Ribbleton candidates to attend the count and the official declaration.

Mark Cotterill, editor of Heritage & Destiny, polled 15.7% of the vote in Preston City Council’s Ribbleton ward at yesterday’s election. The result was declared early this evening.

This was by a long way the city’s best nationalist/populist/Brexiteer vote. In the Sharoe Green ward, the candidate of Reform UK (the rebranded Brexit Party), polled 2.1%, while a candidate from the UKIP breakaway Heritage Party (completely unconnected to H&D!) polled 2.6% in City Centre ward.

This has been a challenging transitional year for our movement, with many of our potential voters opting to ‘reward’ Boris Johnson’s Conservatives for delivering Brexit.

In these circumstances, 16% was a very good result for a racial nationalist independent. Mr Cotterill thanks the many friends and comrades across our movement who generously donated time and/or money to make the campaign possible. We await tomorrow’s Lancashire County Council election count.

Within the last hour we received excellent news that nationalist independent candidate Pete Molloy (already a hard-working and successful parish councillor) has won a seat on Durham County Council, polling 930 votes. This is the best nationalist news so far in what was inevitably a mixed night for movement-linked candidates. Cllr Molloy was also re-elected to Spennymoor Town Council.

While it appears that most candidates who chose to focus primarily on anti-lockdown politics have polled poorly, an exception was veteran ex-BNP candidate Chris Roberts, who polled 8.3% in the county division of South Benfleet, Essex, and 9.3% in a by-election for Boyce ward, Castle Point.

We shall of course be publishing a full report and analysis on nationalist and populist candidates, both here on this website and in the slightly delayed May-June edition of the magazine.

And we look forward to playing our part in building the post-Brexit, post-Covid nationalist movement.

Ribbleton ward result

Hindle (Labour) 57.2%

Kudi (Conservative) 20.0%

Cotterill (Independent) 15.7%

Phillips (Green) 3.6%

Bosman (Liberal Democrat) 3.4%
