Presently Occupied

Ooh, quite by chance, I have worked out one of the posts that have lately been made to vanish from this site. This was certainly posted here on or about 9th April, having been sent to several publications. It has clearly rattled someone:

As a Commonwealth citizen who is not serving a term of imprisonment in the United Kingdom or in the Republic of Ireland, Julian Assange is eligible to contest a British General Election. We hope that he will do so for the seat of Holborn and St Pancras, which is presently occupied by Keir Starmer. We hope that he will be elected. And we hope that the neighbouring constituency of Islington North will return its Member of Parliament since 1983, Jeremy Corbyn.
