Nominations Coming in from Across the UK
Early nominations today are from Teignbridge and Aberdeen. I am close to having nominations from 20 constituencies now including the Birmingham Constituencies.
It is, however, important that my campaign is broadly based. I am consulting with supporters on details of the position statements that are needed.
It remains, of course, that I may have some difficulties getting the backing from MPs. However, we still have a fortnight for that. Once I have support from the constituencies there is a solid case that I should be allowed to stand because the members want me to stand.
