Campaign boards for Labour have been ripped down, say activists

First published in News

Campaign boards for the Labour candidate in the Heaton ward of Bradford Council have been ripped down, according to party activists.

Mohammed Amran, chairman of the Heaton branch of the Labour Party, said that six boards had been placed in gardens around the ward on Friday. But by Sunday morning the vast majority of them had already been removed. Two of the homes had also had eggs thrown at them, he added. The boards were in support of Labour candidate Nussrat Mohammed, the only female standing in the ward.

“It’s appalling that people are being intimidated,” Mr Amran added. He said the police and Bradford Council’s election unit had been informed.

Candidates standing on May 22 in the Heaton ward are: Peter Davis (Respect); David Ford (Green); Imdad Hussain* (The Peace Party); Sajid Mahmood (Con), Mike McNally (Lib Dem); and Nussrat Mohammed (Lab).

Not so simple says...

Without prejudice ; wonder who it is that's intimidating other parties in that area: thought we lived in a democracy where one is able to speak without fear; apparently not in that ward as someone, probably affiliated with one of the parties doesn't want competing banners!

The police need to get to the bottom of this ASAP and make an example of the wrong doers for the sake of our constitution and resulting democracy.

Also a final note: get out and vote for who ever you want and do not be wasting your vote by not voting; people have died to keep this country free, show them respect by voting freely.
