Tonight has seen the launch of Duncan Miller's campaign as an Independent candidate for Blackburn in the upcoming general election. Duncan launched his campaign with the following message to voters
I am proud to announce my intention to stand as an independent candidate for the Election of Member of Parliament for Blackburn in the upcoming General Election on Thursday 8th June.
Unattached to any political party and the constraints that accompany such an allegiance, it is my desire to campaign on an issue extremely close to my heart and to that of many thousands of Blackburnians. I strongly believe that currently, there is no single bigger issue for the people of our town than the unacceptable plight of our Football Club.
My primary aim is to ensure the future of Blackburn Rovers FC for future generations; we want to see the Club in safe hands and this quite simply means WE NEED VENKY’S OUT!
The problems we have experienced at Rovers – products of a toothless, ineffective governing body, the opportunism of certain self-serving parties and an outdated culture blighted by concerns of corruption – must be urgently addressed. We have been let down by too many for too long and the time for action is here.
Vote to show you are tired of careerist officials, who put self-interest before the real purpose of their roles and the interests of the community they represent.
Vote for action to reform football and to combat the state of emergency at BRFC.
Vote to save Jack Walker’s legacy.
Vote Duncan Miller, vote Venky’s Out.
Despite Blackburn being a labour stronghold, the negative feeling towards towards the owners means he has a decent shot at at least retaining his deposit!
