From various unverified sources:
In Kevin Karol’s Konstituency of Bedfordshire 84,169 out of a possible 462,862 voted, Karol got 8675.
‘EDL candidate gets 9000 1st preferences, apparently fair few 2nd preferences had he got to next round.’
‘No-one passed mandatory 50pc on 1st pref, 2nd pref votes for Labour and Conservative will now be counted.’
The EDL/British Fluffies candidate may have got more votes than anyone would have thought but it is still a demoralising result, coming 4th out 5 candidates although we are this is will be seen as an ‘EDL victory’ – like Walsall and Walthamstow!
Reports of a 1,000s of vote papers spoiled – with ‘this is a waste of money’ in the lead so far!
Also BNP fare dismally in local by-elections. Hope not Hate folks reporting ‘BNP humiliated in Manchester. Just 2.9% in parliamentary by-election and 1.8% in council by-election. How embarrassing.’
