The LABOUR PARTY will move quickly to choose a candidate and date for Newport West by-election making it too short ti
me for others to mount an effective campaign.
I’ve no doubt that MICHAEL SHEEN would be the best candidate but I’ m also sure he wont respond to my invitation to stand as an independent socialist.
But here’s the trick. Organise a campaign to vote for Michael regardless of whether he agrees. People asked to write-in MS name on ballot paper and these will be declared as spoiled ballots – so you can clearly see amount of voted for MS.
If these amount to more than the ‘winnng’ candidate then MS would be morally the MP. Neat eh?
Imagine how a write-in vote for DANNY DYER might work in a London SEAT.
