"I’m so alarmed at the rapid rise to power of my local MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg, and where he may be leading us with his brutal Brexit and endorsements of Boris Johnson and Donald Trump, that I feel compelled to speak up and challenge him."
Dr Phil Hammond, known to many as Private Eye's 'M.D.', is to stand for the NHA Party at the next General Election. He will be standing against his local incumbent, Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, an ardent Brexiter who holds a majority of 10,000 in North East Somerset. Dr Hammond has stated he would be happy to stand aside if a strong progressive alliance candidate emerges - his intent is not to split the vote.
