I noticed in the Herald piece on February 27, regarding my exclusion from the Ropetackle hustings, that Mr Martin Allen, the Ropetackle chairman of trustees, was quoted as saying: “For the Election Special, candidates were invited for all the parties known at the time it was organised.”
Mr Allen has since confirmed to me that the panel was chosen in October.
My candidacy was actually announced in September, therefore this piece of information is factually incorrect.
I was known to be a candidate but was excluded even before other candidates had announced themselves.

National Health Action Party candidate for East Worthing and Shoreham
