As you probably know our leader stood for election at the Batley and Spen by-election, (which was caused by the previous M.P getting a better Job) yesterday 1/7/2021. having spent a week campaigning in the area he managed to increase his vote by 100% and achieved 107 Votes, coming in 8th place.. Well done Howling.
It was a long night with contention about the election and the way it was handled, mainly by George Galloway..who only got 8000+ votes (ONLY) and was beaten into third place by Conservatives and Labour.
The Labour candidate was very excited to meet our leader (see pic) and she won by a few hundred votes, which only added to her excitement.
We are always aware that at an election someone got up, went down to the polling station and put an X next to the Loony Candidate, and we are humbled, and never take this for granted, especially when some of the candidates from the larger parties seem to expect the votes, as their right.. so George..please be a little more humble about the voters.
As usual several of Howlin’s supporters came along to help with the count to give some support..
A Long but good night for the Loony Party, and a big thankyou to the people of Batley and Spen for your hospitality
