AGAINST THE PEOPLE: Labour Fighting In Court To Overturn Derby UKIP Councillor’s Election

  • 1.8K

Labour’s former Derby City Council Leader, Ranjit Banwait, who was unseated by UKIP in May, is today in court attempting to overturn UKIP’s election victory.

Banwait claims that UKIP delivered a “Labour News” leaflet during the campaign which contained false claims about the party, therefore voiding the election result.

However, UKIP activists claim that the information on the “Labour News” leaflet was correct when it was printed in 2016, and that the party has not printed or delivered any of the leaflets since the local elections in 2016.

UKIP’s Paul Bettany received 1,602 votes to Mr Banwait’s 1,128 in the Boulton ward in May, unseating the Labour Council leader with a comfortable margin.

The one “Labour News” leaflet that was allegedly delivered was found in the door of a Labour member, who obviously would have no reason to make up/fake such a delivery.

One UKIP activist told Kipper Central that, after the first day, the trial is “looking good for UKIP”, hopeful that the court at Derby Register Office will uphold the democratic decision of the people.

Cllr Alan Graves, who leads the UKIP group on Derby City Council, said that the “ridiculous” case is simply a reflection of Labour’s “dictatorial” politics.

He told Kipper Central: “The Labour Party in Derby are reflective of the Labour Party generally and they operate in an oppressive, arrogant and bullying way.

“They cannot and will not accept political debate on issues important to people without resorting to abuse in an attempt to shut you up.

“This case is a reflection of that oppression where the ex-Leader of the Council cannot possibly be to blame for him losing the election, despite his overwhelming unpopularity.

“The fact that the Labour party are funding this ridiculous case exposes them for what they are, undemocratic, dictatorial and repressive.”

    Well Reece, the Labour Party has certainly become strangers to Democracy. If they set about this in a ‘Manifesto Commitment’ they could not be more plainly understood. Add to that the Muslim backing, as well as activity to shut up other political views by no platforming the other Parties, and the picture of today’s Labour Party is complete !

    So Labour are complaining about” false claims about the party”.

    Given the torrent of false claims made about UKIP, please can we be told what clause of what Act they are using.

    Corbyn’s Muslim controlled Labour Party are on target to destroy Democracy.

    By 2036 Corbyn’s Islamic Labour Party will be the permanent Government of the UK, thanks to the Muslim block vote. We will all then be living under a Sharia dictatorship and Democracy will no longer exist. There is no way of stopping this happening. Muslim birthrate, immigration and simple arithmetic guarantee this.

    This video is from 2010 as the Muslims were solidifying their control and take over of the Labour Party. Tony Blair found that any area with a 20% Muslim population always returns a Labour councillor or MP. No ifs or buts. Guaranteed. Tony Blair opened our borders to import guaranteed Muslim Labour voters. Labour is now the Party of Islam.
