Yaxley-Lennon Watch: Day 11

I warmly welcome Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, who calls himself "Tommy Robinson" but who would have to give his real name on the ballot paper, as the UKIP candidate for this parliamentary seat of North West Durham. Or, at any rate, as a candidate for this seat, of any party or none.

Either that, or he is running scared of the white working class. After all, I am mixed-race, and the sitting MP, who will presumably be the Labour candidate, has a mixed-race child. We are both impeccably middle-class (Google the house prices in Riding Mill, whence she hails), as the Conservative and the Liberal Democrat candidates will doubtless also be. 

From his own point of view, then, beating us ought to be a doddle.

Not that my candidacy is in any way conditional on his. Another hung Parliament is coming, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it. I will stand for this parliamentary seat of North West Durham, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email Very many thanks.

This post will appear here daily until Yaxley-Lennon officially runs away with his tail between his legs by denying that he is a parliamentary candidate for North West Durham.


  1. Is Durham anything like the place in Stacey Dooley's BBC Three piece below (where Lennon grew up)?

    You wouldn't get it up in Durham, as you don't have anything like the below up there. Nor would Lennon have any reason to stand there.

    When was the last time you had Islamic extremism in Durham?

    1. This is the Pakistan of the white working class. Of which he is running scared.

  2. Yes, that's it. He's "running scared" of someone he's never heard of, in a consistency he's probably never been to (which, last time I checked, isn't renowned for its problem with Islamic extremism).

    I think you're a bit cracked.

    1. He has heard of me, all right. Never you mind how. And the present MP here had never set eyes on the place at the turn of 2017.

      You are, as Margaret Thatcher used to say, frit.
