Libertarian Party Local Election Results

The newly tolerable Libertarian Party quietly announced a list of candidates some time ago on Facebook. I have been looking into what happened to their council candidates.

In Crawley Adam Brown stood for Southgate ward. He finished last, but attracted 53 votes.

Simon Walmsley stood for Horsehay and Lightmoor ward in Telford. That effort yielded 45 votes, a quarter of the Green tally.

Aled Jones was down as standing in the Bridlington North ward, but in fact stood in Bridlington North parish. Despite the confusion Aled won the most votes of any candidate that I followed up on, a pleasantly surprising 476 votes.

The LPUK roster as posted to Facebook

Aaron Hepworth does not appear to have gone ahead with his Westminster bid as no information can be found and, on a trivial search, Radcliffe does not appear to be a constituency. The LPUK does have a track record of having candidates pull out of Westminster bids.

At parish level Stockton on Tees candidate Liam Hillman stood in Newtown alongside nearby Terry O’Neil in nearby Parkfield & Oxbridge. Each polled small numbers of votes, finishing last.

Good luck also to each of the remaining parish candidates including the indefatigable Rohen Kapur and party chairman Guy Montrose.

    1. Well if you knew me at Uni get in touch. I can be googled. For email at least. I polled 47 in the district election and 134 in the town parish election . I did not do a campaign, and I relied on having my name on three ballot papers. I used to be in Medicine but it spat me out for being avant garde and libertarian. Surely it was only a matter of time before I ended up in Politics.

      I stood in the General Election for the Young People’s Party and got 72 votes. I spent a total of 14.40 plus the deposit to achieve that. meaning that each vote cost me £0.20 which is lower than the average vote worth here in Folkestone and Hythe at £1.11

      I am now on three wikipedia pages of Election Constituencies.

      Would be nice to reconnect. Whoever you are.
