Photographic and verbal views of old and modern Dukinfield.
Nick Griffin's election agent from last May's Barking parliamentary campaign was taken to court yesterday - as election expenses haven't been paid.According to a report on Eddy Butler's blog the election agent was told by BNP central office that certain invoices for campaign materials had been paid - but a small British printing business based in Durham is still awaiting payment.The agent tried to argue in court that as he thought the bills had been paid it wasn't his fault. The court did not accept his excuses as it is the job of the agent to check payments have been made.The agent now faces prosecution.Under Section 78(3) of the Representation of the People Act (1983) all bills relating to election expenses have to be paid with 28 days of the election result being declared.Under Section 82(6) of the Representation of the People Act (1983) making a false declaration as to election expenses can carry a sentence of up to a year’s imprisonment or a fine of up to £5,000.Quite a few BNP election agents around the country will now be wondering if they are next to be taken to court - to carry the can for Nick Griffin.Click through the link above to read the full article.
BNP useless bunch of idiots and leaderless.
Your anorak level interest in some aspects of the democratic process is in direct contrast to your loathing of it.
John a great view of old Dukinfield when did that bridge and houses come down the 1960s ?
I will find out I think its was the late 70s.
The LNWR railway viaduct was demolished in 1972. The houses on Park Road, Riverside, Crescent Road and Malpas Street were pulled down 1969-71.
