Welsh publican stands for Parliament

The former constituency of Welsh Windbag Neil Kinnock, now Lord Kinnock of Bedwetting, has an independent candidate standing at the General Election. Paul Taylor, licensee of the Rock in Blackwood has paid the £500 deposit to register as a candidate and produced his manifesto which attacks the current Government and their policies towards pubs.

Paul Taylor blames the smoking ban for the record number of pub closures and calls for a relaxation of the legislation as well as attacking Pub Companies for inflating prices they charge their tenants.

Taylor told The Publican: “I’m just so fed up with what the Labour party has done, I thought I’d give it a go myself.” 

Good luck to Paul, though in Islwyn they do tend to weigh the votes for Labour rather than count them.
I do like his election slogan though:

“Can’t find a decent party to go to? Vote for Paul Taylor!”
