Bez’s campaign to become MP put on hold

Bez’s campaign trail could be short lived after he has been banned from standing for MP of Salford.

Despite spending the last few days putting up posters around the city and urging Mancunian’s to ‘join the revolution’ the Happy Mondays dancer has been told he can’t stand for office after missing the deadline to amend his parties name.

Bez’s Reality Party, whose policies include free public transport, was told by the  Electoral Commission that he must change the parties name as it sounds too much like the pre-existing Realist Party.

Despite warning from the Commission on numerous occasions, it appears Bez has failed to act and until he does will be unable to take the parties campaign any further.
