Dual Candidacy

In Scotland the independent Arbuthnott Commission have come to the conclusion that there is ‘no survey evidence to suggest that dual candidacy is an issue for voters, or a disincentive to their participation in the political process.’

The Labour party’s nasty bit of electioneering in banning dual candidacy in Wales has been shown for what it is – political gerrymandering of the worst kind. Leaving aside Labour’s visionless governance of our country, and a record of incompetence that makes Fawlty Towers look efficient - Labour deserves a hammering in the polls in May for undermining the fundamental democratic rights of the people of Wales.
