Tory Candidature Invalidated

Who said the Tories were going to win Bromley and Chislehurst no problem?

Well it appears that their candidate Bob Neill in invalid to stand for Parliament and has made a false claim on his nomination papers.

It looks likes Bob 'three jobs' Neill has too much opn his plate to check the conditions of his various employments. Apparently his membership of the North East London Strategic Health Authority is a position that explicitly prevents him standing for Parliament under the House of Commons Disqualification Act of 1975.

So not only has he stood when he is inellible but he has also fasley signed the decalration that he is not disqualified under the act. Not only has he ruined his political career and thrown the by-election into tormoil but he has also dented his reputation as a legislator at the same time, the law being another of his jobs.

Thanks to Recess Monkey for this news.
