Cliff Roper has announced the BNP’s Amber Valley candidates for the upcoming local elections. They are a bunch of well-seasoned losers.
Ken Cooper (standing in Heanor & Loscoe) lost in Ripley & Marehay in 2011, came last in Codnor in 2010, lost in Heage in 2009 and came last in Ripley & Marehay in 2008.
Emma Roper (standing in Codnor & Waingroves) lost in Alfreton in 2011 getting only 2.5% of the vote.
Alan Edwards (standing in Ripley & Marehay) lost in Ripley in 2011.
The ones to watch will be “the invisible councillor” Roper himself, fighting to retain his seat in Heanor East, and Hickman, the official BNP challenger to ex-BNPer and “pretentious Tory boy” Lewis Allsebrook in Heanor West.
