12 men in final field to be mayor of Liverpool

BOTH the National Front and the BNP are fielding candidates in the all-male race to be Liverpool's first elected mayor, it was announced today.

Twelve candidates have been nominated to stand. Voters will go to the polls on May3. 

Bienveneda BuckBienveneda Buck:
Where's she gone then?
There was a train of thought that Lady Bienveneda Buck, the kiss-and-tell tabloid darling of the 1990s would have a go. She is a Liverpool resident and indicated she would do via a "where-are-they-now?" interview with the Daily Mail last month.

Four city councillors are standing: Labour leader Joe Anderson and Liberal Democrat Richard Kemp, Steve Radford from the Liberal Party and John Coyne for the Green Party.

Herbert Howe pulled out last week and Phil Redmond is channeling his energies into a new local TV channel.

Paul Rimmer is standing for the English Democrats, Adam Heatherington for UKIP and former city militant Tony Mulhearn for the Trade Union and Socialist Party.

Peter Tierney: National FrontPeter Tierney: National FrontPeter Tierney, the controversial former owner of Quiggins, is representing not the BNP but the National Front. The former party will be fielding Mike Whitby.

There are also two indepedents - Liam Fogarty, the former BBC broadcaster, and Jeff Berman. Oh, and Tory Tony Caldeira.

Councillors decided to bypass a referendum on the issue, as exclusively revealed on Liverpool Confidential in January, and hold elections for the post in May.

They said by moving to the mayoral model the city would improve its chances of receiving £130m in government funds.

Its a shame Herbit is out of the race he could have taken on a whole bunch of apprenticeships and brought business to the city.

Someone ought to give that scruffy Tory some soap, a razor and a tie.

never judge a book by its cover, if he winds he will be representing the citizens and the people who wear pyjamas in the street? appearance? smart casual

Absinthe & TurksApril 8th 2012.

If he has so little respect for the position to which he aspires and the people he is to represent that he can't be arsed to shave and put a tie on he has completely the wrong attitude. The people of Liverpool are heartily sick iof being ruled by the lazy, complacent and self-regarding.

Well of course all Londoners are homeless and beg on the Underground which is why they elected old Etonisn toff Boris Johnson...

Liverpool is not a city of negative stereotypes as the lazy media like to portray it and Anonymous likes to believe.

Outside the seedy world of dubious nightclubs there is no such thing as "smart casual".

Lord StreetApril 8th 2012.

The only people who wear suits without ties are in police custody. Neither do they have belts or shoelaces.

DigApril 6th 2012.

Yeah, Tony Caldeira could do with a scrub too.

Myles FailbetterApril 6th 2012.

what, no wimmin?

Emma BApril 7th 2012.

I see from the Council website that Tony's real name is Antonio Caldeira de Almeida. Ooh, how exotic! His address is the penthouse above 2 gay nightclubs in Stanley Street. He sounds just like Robin Williams in The Birdcage...I wonder if he has an Agador Spartacus?

Oh no! The much-anticipated debate at the Univ of Liverpool tomorrow evening has been called off for fear of disruption by certain "factions"?
