Live report from Birminghall Hall Green, Salma looks like a winner





Just has this report from Ben Bradley of the Green Party and Green Left, he has been working very hard to get the Greens ahead in Solihull but has been campaigning for Salma Yaqoob....Greens are backing her and she is backing some of us, Labour seem to be fighting dirty against her and have produced a leaflet about the Lib dems which has proved offensive!


That is not the half of it. Labour also put out a leaflet telling people that Salma is only standing as a councillor and that she has kept this a secret (http://www.thestirrer.co.uk/April_10/godsiff-accused-of-dirty-tricks-150410.html) - They can not even spell her name correctly.

When Salma told people this is clearly not true then Labour got desperate and dragged our name in to it. http://www.thestirrer.co.uk/April_10/hall-green-dirty-tricks-160410.html - Hence I then got involved.

It is not just Salma they are using dirty tricks against. Have a look at this outrageous leaflet about the Lib Dems -I have never seen something so disgraceful before. (http://www.thestirrer.co.uk/Documents/godsiff.pdf



The labour campaign will only get more dirty as it goes on.

As Birmingham Greens are concentrating on Solihull for the moment I am out campaigning a fair bit for Salma aswell. Over the weekend I was out in Kings Heath which is an area with 3 Lib Dem councillors ( where I also call home) and I expected Respect to get wiped out, however their vote is holding up, they are not getting enough to win the area but certainly enough to be competitive which is all they will need. I was then out in Sparkbrook yesterday and they look like they are going to win that area by a landslide, you can not move for posters. If any of you fancy a flutter I recommend you put a tenner on Salma, her odds are fast decreasing.

I will keep you updated

Ben

I think it is time to call in the police.
RP Act 1983 Section 106: makes it illegal to publish any false statement of fact in relation to the candidate's personal character or conduct, unless he can show that he had reasonable grounds for believing that statement to be true. It is also illegal to publish a false statement of a candidate's withdrawal from an election.
