It’s a good point. I have not had a CRB done ever, and was surprised as I arrived at the nomination meeting ,clutching a wad of identity proof that none was required. I ‘d be quite happy to have one done.
With regard to the expenses, it was raised as a question at the BBC Asian QT and I believe all the candidates gave a fair indication of the lack of funding they had. Mr Wright didn’t specify the amount but did reveal his sources. Personally I donated one thousand, the English Democrats two thousand pounds and the rest was made up from local party members. The leaflets have been paid for by local funds and friendly donations and don’t add up to more than a couple of hundred pounds.
I hope that suffices.
