Why did the parliamentary candidate cross the road?

The Argus: Why did the parliamentary candidate cross the road? Why did the parliamentary candidate cross the road?

A political candidate posed for a campaign picture while meeting voters but appeared in the wrong constituency.

Labour hopeful Nancy Platts is hoping to become an MP for Kemptown and was pictured outside the Walmer Castle Pub with a group of campaigners and supporters, including Brighton and Hove group leader Warren Morgan.

But some users on the social media site Twitter took a dig at the Labour group by pointing out they had technically crossed the parliamentary boundary and were standing in the Pavilion constituency as they were on the wrong side of Queen’s Park Road.

In 2010 Nancy Platts was a Labour candidate for Brighton Pavilion, when she lost to Green candidate Caroline Lucas.

Joe Miller, a future Conservative council candidate for Brighton and Hove, said the apparent blunder showed the Labour candidate was “more Brixton Hill than Albion Hill”.

Blunders Writing on Twitter he wrote it was “embarrassing” that the Labour Prospective Parliamentary Candidate had a picture taken in the wrong constituency.

And in a comic response to the saga, current Kemptown MP Simon Kirby added: “Brighton Kemptown is a very special place made up of lots of different communities. It runs from the Palace Pier to Peacehaven and from Moulsecoomb to the Marina.

“Many people new to the area find its boundaries difficult to fathom. I’d be delighted to show Nancy around the constituency if she would like a tour of all its interesting parts.”

This latest incident adds to the growing list of political campaign blunders.

Earlier this week Lib Dem Sussex MP Norman Baker was ridiculed after spelling Sussex as Susex on the front page of a booklet sent out to constituents.

Nancy Platts said: “We met across the road outside a well-known pub, I would suggest it’s the Tories who don’t know the constituency if they don’t know we’re standing across the road.

“What I’d like is to see them take the issues of people living in Brighton and Kemptown more seriously and talk about issues rather than playing stupid games on Twitter.”

She also provided a picture posted on Twitter of Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Pavilion Clarence Mitchell, saying he was taking the fight to Brighton Pavilion, but standing on the Kemp town side of the pier.

The Conservatives really need to take things seriously. There are people out there suffering massively in this city because of their decisions and policies. Yet they see the only right thing to do is make fun of where someone is standing.

Get real and focus on how you can actually make a positive difference to people lives, rather than playing games.

It's quite amazing that you are forgeting the mess that the present government took on from the previous Labour government, and are only now puting this country back on it's feet, the reason some poeople are still suffering is they were the most hit by the previous Labour governments
virtual meltdown of this country.
Once The labour party and it's members stop trying to sweep these fact under the carpet, people might treat them with a little credability, instead of a party that has no moral code, they screwed up, admit it!!!!

Amazing. Simon Kirby and Joe Miller actually believe that the inhabitants of the Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven Constituency are so small minded and petty as to care where their MPs originate from? I think they are more concerned with the issues of the day, such as the cost of living crisis (thanks Dave), Mr Kirby's vote for the planning regulations that have left Meadow Vale vulnerable to development (nice one, Si) or the £7.1 million in cuts to the fire service, caused by cuts by the Tory-led government of which Simon Kirby is part, which will lead to the withdrawal of one fire engine from the City and one extra death every 5 years, and which Nancy Platts is working hard to stop with the support of thousands of residents from all parties?

Humourless? A Tory talking about humour? A party whose leader's idea of student japes was smashing up a restaurant because he could afford to pay for the damage? I think the funny thing about Tories (especially the Peacehaven ones) is that they actually believe they are witty.

I didn't say that immigrants don't work. I stated that BECAUSE they take jobs in the UK the workers of this country have struggled to compete because their cost of living is higher. our quality of life in the UK has been reduced this century thanks in part to the open borders and the failure of previous non-EU immigrants to integrate properly.

Ex-pats generally left the UK either to work or to retire, aghast at what had become of the country they and their ancestors had built. Why should they return to the country?
