Convicted Stalker Continues to Campaign as a Labour Candidate Despite Suspension

Chris Hardy has been campaigning as Labour’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Carmarthenshire East & Dinefwr despite having been suspended as a member of the party. His website, ‘‘ includes large pictures of a rally with signs photoshopped to look like they are supporting him.

December last year, Hardy was convicted of stalking a teenager and issued with a three-year restraining order to stop him contacting his victim. This February he received a 12-month suspended prison sentence. During the trial, Hardy represented himself, and claimed police had used computer animation to doctor CCTV footage of him…

A Welsh Labour spokesman told WalesOnline that “Chris Hardy is not and never has been our candidate. No-one should be fooled by his delusional behaviour.” He’s crazy.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
