The BNP candidate and the Liverpool pigeon shed

by | 19th, April 2012

POLITICS Story of the Day features Mike Whitby, the British National Party’s candidate for Liverpool mayor. The Liverpool Echo reports that Whitney is eligible to stand for elected office because he rent a “redundant pigeon shed” in the city.

When is a pigeon shed no longer a pigeon shed? And what does local mean? Whitby is said  to be standing on the motto “local people first”. Only, he lives in North Wales. On May 3 he will stand for election to Wrexham council.

The Post explains:

He must own property or have business interests in Liverpool to stand for mayor. On his nomination papers he cites that he rents a “storage facility” at the Cricketers Club in Wavertree.

A source says they don’t know what is in the old pigeon shed. But rumours are that it’s the usual crap…
