    I don't know what the policy is for linking to the England First website (I notice that they are not linked in the political parties section below)

    But according to their website, and Wikipedia, a candidate for the "Democratic Nationalists" will be standing at the by-election.

    United Anti-EU Front

    As long as Anti-EU Patiots stand against each other in these by-elections we are doomed to failure at the ballot box. We will never get an Anti-EU Patriot MP elected to our Westminster Parliament as we are, because we are splitting the anti-EU vote.

    What is required is a cross party United Anti-EU Front. This could be a nonparty political organisation that selects the best Anti-EU Patriot from among the candidates standing in the by-election. Anti-EU Patriots should then all campaign and vote for that best candidate regardless of their party allegiance.

    The United Anti-EU Front cannot not include any senior people from any of the minor parties as they have already shown themselves totally incapable of coordinating any sort of electoral pact.

    The "United Anti-EU Front Candiate" would have to be chosen through internet debate, on a forum such as this. And this debate must not involve any of the minor party leaders as they would all simply demand support for their own candidate, regardless of the merit of that candidate and that would lead to chaos.

    To avoid chaos the minor party leaders must be kept out of the debate, and the candidate must be chosen purely on merit. This may sound complicated, but by using just a small amount of common sense and simple basic arithmetic it is usually pretty obvious who would be the best person, to be the Anti-EU candidate in any particular by-election.

    Lets start by choosing a "United Anti-EU Front" candidate in this by-election in Bradfor West.

    It's a bit late now. Nominations closed last week. Eight candidates:

    http://www.bradford.gov.uk/NR/rdonly...sNominated.pdf

    Imran Hussain Labour
    Jackie Whiteley Conservative
    Sonja McNally UKIP
    George Galloway Respect
    Jeanette Sunderland Lib Dem
    Dawud Islam Green
    Alan Hope OMRLP
    Neil Craig Democratic Nationalists
    I reckon the order I've placed the candidates in is the most likely result. UKIP should retain their deposit.

    I'd put the Limp Dums above Allahway, even with their current unpopularity.
