Candidates

Nominations have closed for the London Mayor and Assembly elections.

A full list of candidates is here:

http://www.londonelects.org.uk/candidates/the_candidates.aspx

Of the minor parties:

The Greens are running in every seat

Left List (i.e. the SWP bit of Respect) are running in 12 of 13 constituencies, the exception being North East where I live which is odd given their activist base here.

Respect (Galloway) is only running in City & East (and for the London-wide list)

Socialist Alternative (AKA Militant) is running in Greenwich & Lewisham

The Socialist Party (I think this is SPGB) are standing in Lambeth & Southwark

BNP are also only standing in City & East (and for the list)

NF are standing in Bexley & Bromley, City & East, Ealing & Hillingdon, Greenwich & Lewisham, South West

UKIP are standing in every seat

Veritas are standing in Barnet & Camden

English Democrats are standing in every seat

Christian Peoples Alliance are standing in Barnet & Camden, Bexley & Bromley, City & East, Croydon & Sutton, Enfield & Haringey, Greenwich & Lewisham, Havering & Redbridge, Lambeth & Southwark, Merton & Wandsworth, South West

Christian Party is standing in Brent & Harrow, Ealing & Hillingdon, North East

The two Christian Parties seem to have some joint candidates and a joint list for the list section (ideologically the Christian Party is more fundamentalist whilst CPA says it aims to be a European style Christian Democrat party).

One London (the ex-UKIP, ex-Veritas GLA members) and Unity for Peace & Socialism (which I think is the orthodox Communist CPB) are running for the list but not the constituencies.

Shirley Houghton had been selected as Conservative candidate in Lambeth and Southwark, but does not appear on the list of nominated candidates. I do not know whether this is a mistake by London Elects, or a failure (deliberate or otherwise) to be nominated by the Conservatives in Lambeth and Southwark.

The Socialist Party standing in Lambeth & Southwark are ex-Millies too, I'd imagine.

Anyway, onward and upward and here's to seeing off Boris the faux-buffoonish Tory reactionary.

I understand that it is an SPGB candidate - probably Danny Lambert.

cheers
