It's been decided. We will be standing a candidate in this by-election. The Socialist candidate will be Danny Lambert.
The 10 signatories to nominate were obtained this afternoon and the nomination papers will be handed in tomorrow morning.
Two of those we asked mentioned if we had anything to do with Russell Brand who in a BBC interview with Jeremy Paxman last week called for a revolution to establish an "egalitarian socialist society". We replied not exactly, but we will be contesting this time under the slogan "Revolution the only solution". One of the signatories revealed that he had voted for us in a previous election.
The manifestos are already at the printers and the 5000 will be delivered later this week or early next week. Then we start distributing them with the aim of delivering them all by 13 November when the postal ballot papers will be sent out.
