The vile Phil Woolas (Labour) has long gone, but who will replace him? The candidates have been announced for the Oldham and Saddleworth by-election. I make that one woman and nine men;
Debbie Abrahams (Labour)
Kashif Ali (Conservative)
Peter Allen (Green Party)
Derek Adams (British National Party)
Paul Nuttall (UK Independence Party)
Elwyn Watkins (Liberal Democrats)
David Bishop (Bus-Pass Elvis Party)
The Flying Brick (Monster Raving Loony Party)
Loz Kaye (Pirate Party of the United Kingdom)
Stephen Morris (English Democrats)
The by-election will take place on the 13th of Jan 2011.
According to wikipedia the May results were as follows;
|Liberal Democrat||Elwyn Watkins||14,083||31.6||−0.5|
Any predictions for placing the parties? Anyone want to predict that the Lib Dems come lower than third place - and if so who would beat them?
