Don't Be A Burke

For all the greatness of Edmund Burke, he died in 1797, and there were no party designations on ballot papers in those days.

Both the candidate's name and that designation now appear. Both are now read out at the declaration of the result.

Therefore, if either changes, then there does now need to be a by-election.

In any case, on what else, exactly, would the Independent Group defer to Burke? What else are they even aware that he ever said?
