Kamikaze independent candidates (episode one)

It’s probably quicker and easier to burn that £500, but many with more money than sense prefer to blow the money on a deposit in order to humiliate themselves as hopeless independent candidates.* In the run up to the general election Scrapbook will be paying tribute to these kamikaze politicos with this irregular feature.

The man below is standing against Jack Straw in Blackburn. It all looks a bit Screaming Lord Sutch but Scrapbook isn’t convinced that this is for show!

I’m sure the Justice Secretary must be terrified.

*Don’t even start with “typical Labour arrogance” etc. We’re talking John Smeaton and Sir James Goldsmith here, not Martin Bell or Peter Law.
