We want and need a broadly based movement, to coalesce into a new party once in Parliament, just as the Conservative Party, the Liberal Party, the Labour Party and (albeit at a very accelerated pace) the SDP all emerged.
I will be contesting North West Durham in any May or June Election, if the doctors let me when, in March, I next see them (several operations over the last couple of years). They almost certainly will, but having done exactly as they have told me is how I am still alive. In no particular order, priorities are my election, the re-election of Dai Davies, and the re-election of Bob Wareing. I don't agree with either of them about everything, but that's not how a political movement works.
I am more baffled than anything else at any suggestion that the Old Labour social conservative and patriotic position is embodied by the BNP, most of whose voters were previously Tories of the lower end of lower-middle-class type who see themselves as a cut above their chavvy neighbours. It is the Tory vote that goes down when the BNP vote goes up, but most commentators assume that Labour would ordinarily expect every vote in Yorkshire, or the North West, or the East End. If the BNP is any sort of voice of "the white working class", then how come it does pitifully badly here in the North East?
Keep Dai Davies and Bob Wareing in, and put me and anyone else we hear of in as well: you don't have to live in the constituency to give your time or your money.
