There are 1277 candidates from populist and far right parties standing in the county council, local, and mayoral elections taking place on 4th May. This is a drop of 658 candidates from 1935 overall standing in the same regions' last election cycles.
This reflects a significant decline in the willingness and ability of the far right to engage in democratic politics. Perhaps most striking is the continuing decline of the British National Party which has managed to stand a mere 10 candidates in the county council elections, down from a record 744 in 2007.
The weekend has passed. And with it the hopes and dreams of a white revolution, whereby the likes of Paul Prodromou (it's proven now, Paul, so drop the fake name) will take over the country and declare war on literacy, numeracy, the English language and Spain. Never mind.
