This is our Press Release on Tracy Brabin’s failure as the Labour Candidate for Batley & Spen to condemn Amanda Stubley’s attack on the English Democrats’ stall on Saturday, 8th October.
Tracy Brabin fails to condemn Labour Councillor’s violent attack on English Democrats’ campaign stall in Batley
The English Democrats Chairman, Robin Tilbrook, wrote to Tracy Brabin’s team on the 11th October asking for the London based EastEnders soap opera starlet and Labour Party candidate for Batley & Spen, and Remainer, to condemn the violent attack by one of her fellow Party members in Batley on the English Democrats’ stall. Despite being politely requested to do so Ms Brabin has failed to respond either appropriately or at all.
Robin Tilbrook, Chairman of the English Democrats said:- “I find it despicable that Ms Brabin has not condemned the appalling behaviour of Councillor Amanda Stubley’s of Batley East who attacked the English Democrats campaign stall on Saturday, 8th October. I assume since it is part of the usual repertoire of Labour dirty tricks in a Labour area when they are challenged that she condones Councillor Stubley’s disgraceful behaviour.”
Robin continued:- “Here is what I wrote to Ms Brabin and her election team:-
Dear Miss Brabin
Re: Conduct of Councillor Amanda Stubley – Batley East Ward – 8th October in Market Place, Batley
The above named Councillor Stubley attacked our campaign stall at about 1.00 p.m. on Saturday and during the attack stated that she supported Jeremy Corbyn’s “anti-Semitic” policies and claimed that Batley is her town. The implication was that no other political parties were allowed in the town. Furthermore she claimed that she was the Batley East Councillor in Kirklees Metropolitan Borough Council “for life”. Councillor Stubley claimed that the English Democrats are “Racists” for supporting Leaving the EU and for campaigning for England’s rights.
I respectfully invite you to repudiate the comments and actions of Councillor Stubley and join with me in calling for her to be prosecuted for Breach of the Peace, the Public Order Act offences of using Threatening, Abusive and Offensive language, Criminal Damage and Attempted Criminal Damage together with Electoral Offences in interfering with other candidates during an election and making false statements about them.
