It will be quite a party in Sittingbourne & Sheppey at the next election as now we will have six candidates battling for the votes.
Today UKIP announced Ian Davison as their candidate. I suspect Mr Davison and I would agree about a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU but suspect we would vote differently. Still, a welcome to Ian.
And the BNP have recently announced an intention to put up a candidate. No surprise, really, as they got 15% of the vote in Sheppey at the county council elections this year.
The Conservative party and the Loonies selected their candidates ages ago and Labour just recently. I don't know about the Greens, English Democrats or anyone else.
So that leaves ... us! I am afraid I can't comment at present but only to say the wheels are in motion. And we are very much looking forward to the campaign.
