Hi

 

I am currently bankrupt ( was in court in October)

I wanted to stand as an independent parlimentary candidate next year. Can I do this as an undischarged bankrupt or would I have to be discharged first?

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

From BBC News....

Parliamentary elections in individual constituencies are called when an MP dies or resigns during a Parliament.

Other official causes for a seat to fall vacant - triggering a by-election - include the incumbent MP's bankruptcy, elevation to the peerage, or lunacy.

 

You'll find more info in the House of Commons Library under

BANKRUPTCY AND DISQUALIFICATION.

No apparently, You can steal, rob cheat and lie after you become an MP, but they have this wierd sense of logic about "honourable"


Hope this helps

I think Mr Hamilton's bankrupcy occured after he lost his seat to Martin Bell.

Isn't it odd that a bankrupt can't become an MP. When you look at the integrity of the current lot I am convinced that many bankrupts would have more humility and a higher ethical standard.

As a voter if I knew that the candidate for the seat had been bankrupt, I would have my doubts about them being able to manage any finances or issues. This is just an opinion and not a go at any one.

At least you know where you stand then.

 

The current lot (Broon in particular) have clearly shown their ability to manage finances.

Surely you mean "their ability NOT to manage finances"? :)
