A Stalin Society member, David Irving, Daud Abdullah (we do have some Muslims here, even if not very many), Oliver Kamm, Peter Tatchell or (since he already seems to be a candidate elsewhere) someone who shares the full range of his views, and (if they bother to put her up, rather than giving Kamm a clear run) a New Labour candidate whose only political opinion is her support for partial birth abortion.
So, a gulag-denier, a Holocaust-denier, a Sharia supporter, a Bush-loving warmonger, someone who wants to lower the age of consent to 14 or even younger, and a baby-murderer. All each other's moral equals, of course.
Plus me. A passionate opponent of all of the above.
Go on. Let's make North-West Durham the most interesting parliamentary contest in England, at least, for generations. What is stopping you? The Soviet Union collapsed so quickly that much of its money cannot have been spent to this day, and must still be languishing in some London bank account. David Irving is loaded. So are the Saudis. So was Kamm even before the City was bailed out by the rest of us, not to mention that he would be the candidate of the Likud Lobby. And someone must be paying for Peter Tatchell.
I say that there is a ninety per cent chance that none of you could collect enough signatures to get onto the ballot paper. A ninety-five per cent chance that you would all lose your deposits. And a one hundred per cent chance that you would all together take fewer votes than I. Try and prove me wrong. Go on. I dare you.
After all, what are you afraid of...?
