Chris Davidson to stand in Penrith and the Borders

I was busy working on election maps late into the night, preparing the 25 election packs of our team leaders and their activists in the wards that make up the Workington constituency.

Yesterday's internal problems within the Labour Party can only help our cause and the senseless leadership challenges and all the bickering that follows will only depress Labour's swindling band of activists even more.

Having said that, my campaign in Workington will target the Tories more than Labour. I certainly don't want to see a Conservative victory and will be reminding voters that this Labour Government has only been so appalling because Blair and Brown became the Pink Tory Party.

It is White working class Britons who have suffered the most because they lost Old Labour - a party whose activists at least, went through the motions of fighting their corner. Now it is only the British National Party that represents them.

There was good news yesterday when Chris Davidson (left) was selected as the British National Party's candidate for Penrith and the Borders. The constituency is very rural and the farming community holds sway here and that's why we are so pleased that Chris is our candidate. He has had a long and enduring friendship with this community and is very well known and trusted by them.

The main towns in his constituency are Penrith, Wigton and Longtown. In Penrith we recently polled 12% in a local council election. Across the whole of Wigton BNP candidate Paul Stafford polled 19% in June at the county council elections, and in Longtown, Chris himself polled 15%.

With a good campaign I think the British National Party will certainly be making its presence felt in this Tory stronghold.
