Rodney Hylton-Potts

Bumped into independent right wing game show winning candidate Rodney Hylton-Potts on Saturday night, or rather he started SPOUTING in the restaurant we were in. First clue something was going on were shouts of "castrate paedophiles" - hard to argue with, but not what you expect when you're having dinner. Next he came over to us, offering to legalise cannabis, but when we asked why he was standing somewhere he didn't live and about the deal he's done with the BNP (they'll not field a candidate in his area, and he'll urge his supporters in other areas to vote for them), he slowed right down. We'd had quite a lot of wine, but he definitely said we should vote for Lib Dem Peter Carrol instead and laughed about splitting the right wing vote. So, who knows WHAT'S going on. The deal with the BNP is on their website, will he not be in trouble for this? Can't figure the guy out...

The Guardian's had to print this correction, but it's not for suggesting he's a racist, but for suggesting one of the judges on Vote For Me liked him.

Quite a nice meal, despite the interruption. My food was a bit bland, but that's a vegan tradition, everyone elses was nice. Proper review on the way.

This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
