Emeraude ( a name pleasingly similar to ‘haemorrhoid’) has responded to me (see last blog piece) with:
No. You are wrong. There is no legal requirement on a party to be registered unless it is contesting elections. I have no interest in contacting you or whoever you are. If there is a reliable source – e.g. the J4MB website saying “we are no longer a party” (which would be very simple) or a newspaper reporting it is no longer a party – the issue remains mute. By your reckoning, a number of parties whose registration lapsed because they forgot to pay the annual fee for a few months ceased to be parties but became parties again when they paid. That’s nonsense. And, taken to its logical extent, the Whigs were not a party!
WE ARE NO LONGER A PARTY, EMERAUDE
