Close to the deadline

Tomorrow is the deadline for announcing one’s candidature for the general election, so on Wednesday we will know the final list of candidates. There’s been no more candidates in Bradford West (despite my hopes of a candidate from a semi-respectable right wing party to dilute the BNP vote) but City of York has had another one – Graham Cambridge. Except he’ll be appearing on the ballot paper as Cambridge, Graham “King Eddie Vee – The Yorkshire Elvis” (Official Monster Raving Loony Party). He stood in 2001 and only managed a few hundred votes.
My poll card for Bradford arrived today so I do have a vote here, which I’ll be using, especially as the polling station is on my way into uni. I also have a postal vote for York which I’ll discard – despite having two addresses I can only vote once.
