New Liberal Democrat candidate doesn't even live in Hull

Questions are being asked after the Liberal Democrats in “East Hull” selected a candidate who is not even a resident of the city to stand for election in the Drypool Ward in May. Under existing election law a candidate must be a resident or work in the city they are attempting to seek election to.

But their candidate lives miles away in the East Riding at Lane End Farm, Swine Lane, Coniston in East Yorkshire. After a series of defections they must be struggling to find paper candidates to fight seats in the city.

I suppose it is closer than the ward she did used to represent.

Nearer than the Labour Councillor for Marfleet who resides in Bevrley
