Notes:-

   1993:  Bannon was a member of Slough Constituency Labour Party. After
          the election he sent a letter to the Conservative Party candidate
          stating that he had contested the election as 'The Conservative
          Candidate' in order to draw attention to the situation in Slough
          at the 1992 general election  when a candidate standing as 'The
          Labour Candidate' had polled more votes than the Conservative
          majority over Labour. He stated he intended to contest every
          subsequent byelection until he polled more votes than the majority
          over a Conservative candidate, or the law was changed to prevent
          such a situation.

          Martin was the candidate of the 'Commoners' Party Movement'.

          Marlar sought election as a 'Refendum Party' candidate.

          Board advocated holding a referendum on the ratification of the
          Maastricht treaty.

          Day sought election as a 'People and Pensioners Party' candidate.

          Grbin, a Bosnian, sought election as a 'Defence of ChildrenÕs
          Humanity' candidate. She advocated military intervention in Bosnia
          by UK forces.

          Stone was opposed to the monarchy and wished to confiscate its
          assets to fund improvements in education.

Note:-

    1987    Anscomb advocated that freight transport should be by rail
   (12/3):  instead of roads, because of the improvement in safety for
            road users that would result. The former MP, David Penhaligon,
            had been killed when his car collided with a freight lorry.

Notes:-

    1983    Anscomb advocated that freight transport should be by rail
   (28/7):  instead of roads, because of the improvement in safety for
            road users that would result.

            Connell sought election as a 'Peace' candidate.

            Smith was the candidate of the 'New National Party', which he had
            formed.

Note:-

   1992:  Wareham sought election as a 'Chauvinist Raving Alliance'
          candidate.

   1993:  Bannon was a member of Slough Constituency Labour Party. He
          contested the election as 'The Conservative Candidate' in order
          to draw attention to the situation in the Slough constituency at
          the 1992 general election, where a candidate standing as 'The
          Labour Candidate' had polled more votes than the Conservative
          majority over Labour.

          Newman believed the then manager of the English association
          football team, Graham Taylor, should be dismissed.

          Bardot-Jackson was sponsored by a national newspaper in order
          that the newspaper could obtain free postage in the constituency
          for publicity material for the cost of the £500 deposit.

          Hollyman contested the election on a theme of increased
          expenditure on the National Health Service.

          Crockard sought election for the 'Highlander IVth Wednesday night
          promotion party'. He owned the Highlander public house in the
          constituency and was contesting the election in order to obtain
          publicity for it.

          Belcher sought election as the 'Ian for King' candidate.

          Fitzhugh sought election as 'The Alfred Chicken Party' candidate.

Note:-

   1983:  Barry advocated the reintroduction of capital and corporal
          punishment.

   1995:  Douglas sought election as a candidate of the 'Conversative Party'.
          He was attempting to cause confusion and to attract the votes of
          electors intending to vote for the official Conservative candidate.
          His candidature was prompted by the situation in the Devon and East
          Plymouth constituency at the 1994 European Parliamentary Elections
          where a candidate seeking election as a 'Literal Democrat' polled
          more votes than the Conservative majority over the Liberal Democrat
          candidate.

          Blobby had changed his name by deed poll from John McLagan to that
          of a Television character. He was a 34-year-old London businessman,
          and advocated a four-day week, the bricking-up of the Channel
          Tunnel and action on wobbly tables in restaurants.

          McLaren sought election as an 'Old Labour' candidate. He was
          opposed to the selection of Woolas as the official Labour
          candidate, which he regarded as an imposition by the National
          Executive Committee of the Labour Party. He had been expelled
          from the Labour Party in 1993.

Note:-

   1987-  Browne came under investigation by the House of Commons Committee
   1992:  on Member's Interests after he failed to declare a financial
          interest when putting a question to the Prime Minister. The
          Committee report recommended that Browne be censured, and when
          the report was discussed on 7th March 1990 it was endorsed and
          Browne was suspended from the House of Commons for four weeks
          without pay. Subsequently, Browne decided not to seek selection
          as the Conservative Party candidate for the constituency, and
          Malone was selected. After the selection, Browne respited on his
          decision and attempted to get selection as the official candidate.
          The local Conservative Association refused to endorse him and he
          announced that he would seek election as an unofficial candidate.

          After the Prime Minister had announced the dissolution of
          Parliament, Browne repeated his decision to stand, and so on the
          penultimate day of the 1987 parliament (March 13th, 1992) the
          Government Chief Whip, R.A. Ryder, sent a letter to Browne
          withdrawing the goverrnment whip and informing him that were he
          to be re-elected, the Conservative whip would 'never again be
          extended to you'.

          During the election, Browne was supported by the local Conservative
          Club, which was not formally linked to the Conservative Party.

Notes:-

    1992:  Sherred was a local solicitor and a former Chair of the Dover
           Chamber of Commerce.  His campaign concentrated on local issues,
           and he was supported by some of his business associates.

           Philp ran an archeological dig in the constituency. He was in
           dispute with Kent County Council over the administration of the
           dig, and sought election in order to draw attention to them.

Notes:-

    1997:  Gott sought election as a 'Disillusioned Conservative' candidate.

           Anthony had changed his name from Neville Anthony Wylie
           Samuelson in order to be placed at the top of the ballot paper.
           He opposed party political donations from companies in the 
           tobacco business.

           Astbury was a victim of thalidomide and was sponsored by the
           'Thalidomide Action Group UK'.

           the case of her son who had been imprisoned in Goa for posession
           of Cannabis which he claimed had been planted on him by police.

Notes:-

    1983:  Macmillan became Viscount Macmillan of Ovenden in 1984 as a
           courtesy title on his father receiving an Earldon.

    1984:  Litvin was the candidate of the 'Pro-Nuclear Holocaust
           Masturbation Freedom Party', which he had formed.

           Anscomb advocated that freight transport should use rail instead
           of road transport, because of the improvement in road safety that
           would result. She also opposed the increase in deposits for
           parliamentary candidates that were then proposed (which came
           into operation in 1985).

           Smith sought election as a 'Votes for a full Hearing' candidate.

    1992:  Newman sought election as an 'Anglo-Saxon' candidate.
