It’s the Green Party and you can cry if you want to

MCFly 57 (published Sunday 26th September) reported that Gayle O’Donovan would be standing for the Green Party in the Hulme by-election forced by the resignation of sitting councillor Emily Lomax. Two days later MCFly’s website reported that Ms O’Donovan had stepped down and that the Greens would now be fielding David “Hazel must go” Henry as a candidate. Mr Henry had to step down (he is not eligible). Another candidate was mooted, but there were possible trust issues with 51% of the electorate.
The Green Party has now announced Deyika Nzeribe as their (final) candidate, and tell us “Deyika’s work is helping people back into employment and in setting up cooperatives. He has lived in Hulme for ten years and is active in the Birley Fields campaign and in anti-racist campaigning.”
Meanwhile the Liberal Democrats are contesting the ward vigorously (in May they ran a ‘paper’ candidate). Even meaner and even whiler, Labour activists – including Executive Member for the Environment Nigel Murphy, who is a Hulme Councillor – are out knocking on doors and (figuratively) kissing babies on behalf of their peripatetic serial candidate Amina Lone. The by-election takes place on Thursday November 4. MCFly will ask all the candidates about their climate views and duly report.
