BNP to stand in East Barnet
Last week, fellow blogger Vickim57 wrote an interesting piece about the importance of local newspapers for democracy. Don’t Call Me Dave agrees with that sentiment entirely. He was therefore delighted to note the arrival of a new publication on our doorsteps - The Barnet Bugle.
In an exclusive article, The Bugle has discovered that the BNP are fielding a candidate in East Barnet ward. Three independent candidates are also standing for election. It will make for a very interesting contest and the Conservatives will be forced to divert massive resources to this area if they wish to hold on to their seats.
The Bugle claims as its mission statement that it will bring rigour to Barnet politics. In the interest of proper democratic accountability and scrutiny, let us hope that it succeeds.
