LABOUR V DEMOCRACY: Ex Derby Labour Leader Takes Election Battle To Court
You may all remember Ranjit Banwait. The electoral scalp of the then Labour Leader of Derby City Council Ranjit Banwait was the highlight of an otherwise pretty grim night for UKIP back in May. It would have been reasonable to assume that, tail between his legs, Mr Banwait would have retired quietly and bothered the good folk of Derby no more. However, this is Labour we are talking about, so, of course, there is a massive sting in the tail.
Mr Banwait has lodged a legal petition with the High Court of Justice trying to get the local election result in the Boulton ward declared null and void over very vague and alleged ‘irregularities’ in the UKIP campaign. The Leader of the Derby City Council group, Councillor Alan Graves, blasted Labour for opposing democracy:
The Labour Party is trying to flex their muscles here, even though this action is anti-democratic. They are clearly upset at losing so badly to UKIP and are willing to risk a pot of money to change the will of the people, believing that we will not defend ourselves. This fight is not just about UKIP, it is about the people we represent and the democratic process. Any help readers can offer, no matter how small will be helping a just cause.
