Candidate threats to write sons out of will over election row

By-election is tearing my family apart says candidate

By-election is tearing my family apart says candidate

Ray Hall with his wife Carol.

WHEN Ray Hall decided to stand in the Eastleigh by-election, he had no idea it would tear his family apart.

The 73-year-old candidate for the Beer, Baccy and Crumpet Party was prompted to put forward his name because he was fed up with the performance of the coalition Government.

But the move has seen the former Conservative Party member of 30 years’ private life descend into turmoil.

Ray claims his sons – Jerry, Richard and Robin – have “disowned”

him for standing against Conservative candidate Maria Hutchings.

In return he has threatened to cut off their £250,000 inheritance.

One of his three sons, Jerry, 50, who is the chairman of the Eastleigh Conservative Association, is no longer speaking to him.

Meanwhile Ray’s wife of 40 years, Carole, 68, has moved away to stay with friends in Weston super Mare, Somerset, since Ray decided to stand.

Mr Hall said: “My wife is really upset by the family turmoil. She just gets really emotional about this. I am not sure where it has left my marriage.”

Speaking about his sons, he said: “I am very disappointed with the way they have reacted. It is very short-sighted of them.

“I thought that politics would be a bit like rugby, where you all shake hands afterwards, but I did not realise the acrimony there would be.

“I am not worried about the antagonism from them, it does not concern me.

“I’m from a tough family. My father was a pilot in the Battle of Britain and I will not let them get to me. They are stupid for adopting this attitude towards me.”

Ray, who ironically lives next door to a Conservative Club in Netley Firs Road, Hedge End, is dismissive of the Tory candidate Maria Hutchings.

“She is a sheep, she has been chosen by the Tory Party because they want more women in the party,” he told the Daily Echo.

One of the policies Mr Hall aims to fight for should he be elected is to cut the excise duty on draught beer to zero to help pubs and restaurants compete with supermarkets.

He also wants to introduce designated indoor smoking areas in pubs.

He also aims to tackle student loan debt and wants to bring back capital punishment.

When contacted by the Daily Echo, two of Ray’s sons had contrasting opinions on the family row.

Jerry said: “It is a sad situation and a personal family thing. You can’t control what your father does. The focus for me is working with the best candidate, Maria Hutchings.

“I’m fine not having the inheritance.

My dad is exercising his democratic right to stand and he can do whatever he wants to do.”

However Richard, 48, tried to play down the split.

He said: “It’s all good fun, and we are very proud of Ray and there is not very much turmoil at all."

Love the photo Echo! Well done to the photographer. Seems like a character and fair play to him. Love the policies(apart from capital punishment) and he is spot on regarding Maria the Tory loose cannon. Best of luck Ray and hope you sort it out with the family!

These people need to get a life. Seriously! Why is the Echo running this story? The guys going to have a single figure vote count. Are we going to have a piece about Jim Duggan and Daz Proctor's family life next week in the interest of balance?

The only story in Eastleigh is who comes second. The Lib Dems have turned the country upside down for help to save their skins and should hold on-no more scandals permitting. Farage is the new anti political vote the Liberals used to enjoy at the expense of the Tories. Even money on 2nd place.
Labour's votes have gone to prop up the Lib Dems.

That is democracy, like it or lump it.

He is entitled to be heard.

We the public are entitled to hear what he has to say.

If you don't agree with his policies you don't vote for him.

The way the main parties forget the electorate the minute they are elected and go onto represent the party backers interests only sickens me.

Thanks Daily Echo for giving coverage to independent candidates who don't have financial backers and who are not rich.

The electorate is entitled to a balanced coverage of all candidates, even if they are only likely to attract a small number of votes.

He is spot on about Maria Hutchings, life long Labour supporter who defected to the Tories and spouts UKIP Policies to the electorate, if you don't believe me go look at their 2010 manifesto.

So from a left wing part to a right wing party and spouting extreme right wing views. Not sure what principles she stand for apart from self interests.

I was mainly saying it's a bit of a non story. So his family won't speak to him for a few weeks after the election. So what. Also surely in a democracy all the independent candidates should have equal airtime/ newstime. As southy says we haven't heard anything from Daz Proctor.

There is still a small number of people who believe the earth is flat and the moon landings were staged in Hollywood. Disagreeing with the broadly similar views of the majority doesn't make you correct as the BNP and the Monster Raving Loony Party continually find even though they experience better results than you.

Generally, Politicians are self-serving, publicity junkies who believe that they can tell us day is night and that we are stupid enough to believe it. There is no radical talent and we seem to be teetering on the precipice while these public school, chinless wonders play political tennis whilst resolving nothing. So why not vote Beer, Baccy and Crumpet can't be any worse and at least grubby ambition is not the motivating factor for the candidate to stand.

Let's have some hefty features on the NHA, TUSC, Wessex regionalists, and Danny Stupple (independent).

We're all sick to death of the major parties, but their cartel will never be broken whilst the media pander to it.

.. be careful of the TUSC lot. While appearing to be just a coalition of Trade Unionists and some Socialists; they are in fact, research has revealed, just a front for the Trotskyist of the Socialist Party (England and Wales) and other entryist Trotskyist factions (of which there are many).

We all know what the blue tories, yellow tories, red tories and xenophobe party stand for. Let's have some hefty features on the NHA, TUSC, Wessex regionalists, and Danny Stupple (independent). We're all sick to death of the major parties, but their cartel will never be broken whilst the media pander to it.[/p][/quote]Careful about the NHA lot all is not as they seem with this group, they are an interduction group with right wing connections put in to the election system to break up the left wing support vote, some one in the "stand up for the south" lot have been doing some research thinking that they sound good for the vote. and coming across with some surprising information.[/p][/quote].. be careful of the TUSC lot. While appearing to be just a coalition of Trade Unionists and some Socialists; they are in fact, research has revealed, just a front for the Trotskyist of the Socialist Party (England and Wales) and other entryist Trotskyist factions (of which there are many). freefinker

Don't know about Duggan, But for Proctor theres a news black out, so very unlikely.
Seems to be happening in the Camden Town by-election to.
.. or could it be that TUSC has nothing newsworthy to say?
Politics wise we are the only ones offering real change all others are offering the same in there own way.
