Hope not Hate can exclusively reveal that the English Defence League are standing a candidate at the forthcoming Rotherham by-election.

Violent thug Clint Bristow is the EDL's Doncaster organiser and is standing in the election due to take place on November 29th. Although not listed as an EDL candidate there can be no doubt over the real intentions of Bristow's candidature. The BNP will not be happy.

Bristow, a former BNP member, has been arrested several times at EDL demonstrations. In October 2011, Bristow, who also uses his real name Brian was jailed for seven days and ordered to pay £400 costs and £10 compensation after admitting using threatening behaviour. He was also given a conviction-related ASBO (CRASBO) as part of his sentence. Bristow was one of three men who admitted threatening behaviour towards a man running a stall providing Islamic literature near Speakers' Corner, in October 2010. The victim was verbally abused and had his possessions thrown around. Also in October 2010, Bristow pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis following his arrest at the EDL demonstration in Leicester and was fined £100 with £85 costs.

Yes. Just what Mrs.Guest the holocaust denier (and Ms.Ridley the illiberal Islamist nationalist) needs - an EDL primeval thug. Though I am very disappointed the Green Party seem quiet as they seem to be the only party that can offer Rotherham the alternative community-based left wing anti-austerity politics that Labour seem to have ditched.
