Christian Party flashes cash

Until recently Hackney's billboards were Conservative Party territory. But below is a giant poster on Lower Clapton Road proclaiming Hackney South's Christian Party candidate, John Williams. According to the BBC the Christian Party launched its poster campaign three days ago.

This story mentions that the Christian Party raised over £100,000 in 2010 - small fry compared to many other parties. However it seems to have been attracting cash from all quarters. "Hackney Christians: Money, power, demonic possession"

Rev George Hargreaves, the founder of the Hackney-based Christian Party, has caused controversy with his campaign in a Barking and Dagenham campaign, while his wife, Maxine, is taking on Diane Abbott in Hackney North: God on her side
