On Saturday 10 November, members from various parts of the East Midlands travelled to Corby in Northamptonshire to help the local British National Party team deliver leaflets for the upcoming parliamentary by-election.

The photo shows part of our team as our Derbyshire members were still out campaigning when it was taken.

Polling day is Thursday 15 November and the British National Party candidate is Gordon Riddell.

Gordon is a long serving member of the party and has previously stood for the party in Corby at town and county council elections.

The by-election is due to the resignation of the Conservative MP Louise Mensch.

It is estimated that about half of Corby's population were born in Scotland or are of Scottish descent.

Scottish families started coming to Corby in the 1930's, with the development of the iron and steel works.

At one point, it was estimated that over 70% of the population of Corby were of Scottish descent.

And even today, a quarter of a century after the collapse of the local steel industry, almost 20% of the population were born in Scotland.

Our candidate Gordon Riddell is himself a Scot and was given a very warm reception by the local people we met.
We wish Gordon all the best for Thursday.
