BNP smashed in Laindon Park

from reports


Laindon Park, Basildon By-election

The BNP percentage vote went DOWN in last week’s by-election. The result was:

Labour 818
Conservative 582
BNP 365
Liberal Democrat 139
Independent 30
Turnout  22.9%


There was an impressive response to our appeal for leafleters, particularly from Southend, and the whole ward was leafleted with our ‘Laindon United’ leaflet.

BNP organisers Matt Single and Chris Roberts were clearly gutted and slunk out with their 20-or so supporters before the result was even officially announced. There was a confrontation after the count outside the Moon on the Square with a toxic substance being sprayed by BNP supporters. In case legal action is planned, no further comment at this stage.
