An independent candidate for Ealing Central & Acton will spend the next two nights telling people NOT to vote for him.
Jonathan Notley, who ran in this election due to the "deluge of development happening in Ealing with local residents being ignored by councillors of all parties" would like his supporters to use their vote to back Labour candidate Rupa Huq instead.
He said: "I've spoken at five hustings, so I've got to know the other candidates and their supporters quite intimately. I've read up on the policies of all the parties.
"The Labour candidate Rupa Huq has shown solidarity with local people coming along to our demo against a six-storey Premier Inn Hotel being put in our suburban neighbourhood. At a planning committee meeting, she sat with the residents and urged the councillors to reject the scheme, but the councillors chickened out and deferred it until after the election. That council action triggered my decision to run in this election.
"But I've since got to know Rupa and she is not Ealing Council. I think she will fight our corner. Her heart is in the right place. She is a strong defender of the NHS. She has come out with an election pledge and backed our fight against inappropriate development."
Mr Notley continued to say he went to see Ed Miliband in Harrow on Sunday (May 3) and was moved with how he spoke.
He said he respects Mr Miliband's attempt to try and restore trust in British politics and to help the more vulnerable in our society, and agreed with Russell Brand that the national Labour leader "will listen to us".
Mr Notley added: "I don't know how many votes I might have picked up - a few hundred perhaps, maybe a thousand - but enough to affect the outcome of the Ealing Central & Acton seat."
