As regular as clockwork . . .

When polling day in any Cumbrian election approaches, and there are British National Party candidates standing, you can always rely on one thing.

An attack on the BNP by Cumbrian Newspapers.

It's as regular as clockwork and here's the one that appeared yesterday, timed for the two council by-elections in Castle and Belah wards on Thursday.

No room for racism

No other political party standing for election in Cumbria has to put up with this sort of press coverage just two days before polling day. It is a calculated attempt to interfere with the democratic process and it happens every time.

Please make your feelings known to Cumbrian newspapers, and the PCC, at this intrusion into local politics by the editor, Neil Hodgkinson, who is using the newspaper to promote his own personal political agenda.
