1994:

Huggett sought election as a 'Literal Democrat'. He advocated a system of popular voting based on computer terminals in electors' homes, which he described as 'Literal Democracy'. When the Liberal Democrats discovered his nomination, they unsuccessfully sought an injunction at the High Court to disallow his candidacy.

After the election the Liberal Democrat candidate lodged an election petition on the basis that the nomination should not have been accepted. The petition was dismissed.

A petition was lodged relating to this election by Barrett, but it was dismissed. He alleged that the result of the election had been affected by newspaper articles highlighting his previous criminal convictions. The Court found that the substance of the articles was true, and that this prevented any further consideration of the petition.
