Following the resignation of sitting MP Tristram Hunt, there will be a by-election for the new Member of Parliament for Stoke-on-Trent Central.
Racist UKIP have set their sights on taking the seat and appear set to throw considerable weight behind the campaign. It’s being reported that they are due to announce that party leader Paul Nuttall will be their candidate. Click here for reasons to oppose Paul Nuttall and UKIP.
We have to do all we can to prevent a UKIPs anti-immigrant message winning out.

Join us on one of our anti UKIP campaign days
NorSCARF, in conjunction with Hope not Hate has organised our first day of action on Saturday 21st January at 11pm. As the candidates are yet to be announced and voter registration is still open, for this weekend, we have decided to focus our efforts on voter registration targeting one of the wards with the lowest percentage of residents registered to vote.
We will be split into two teams, one to knock on doors and encourage voter registration and one to deliver this leaflet door to door.
