Victor Thompson website
Independent candidate offers election address on website
You may recall that a few days ago I posed a few questions to Mr. Victor Thompson, the South Shields’ man who is standing as a candidate in the general election, having sent them off by email I got a reply from the man with no description pointing me in the direction of his new website. You will note that whilst he says that he is leaving South Tyneside Council to concentrate on his business, his address goes no further towards answering any of the other questions.
Mr. Thompson’s election address is mostly an anti-political protest which rambles and meanders in various directions, but being anti-political yet wanting to partake in the democratic political process to be elected to the “Mother of all Parliaments”, seems to me a very odd contradiction! There are more words in his election address than I can find in total on The Shields Gazette’s website about Vic’s contributions to debate in South Shields’ Town Hall, was it the attack on the Branleys that led to this verbosity?
I’m sure many of us would still like to know about his relationship with the South Tyneside Independent Alliance, his thoughts on their decision to change their minds about fighting the general election, and his thoughts on the processes that they use to find candidates for the local elections. I’m sure we’d like to know why he thinks he would make a good constituency MP in preference to the other eight candidates who are also offering themselves for the South Shields seat.
I have asked Vic once again to try and answer those questions, I think he ought to be given the chance to put his case.
If you would like to ask him yourself he has a new email address email@example.com
