Three architects running for MP in upcoming UK general election

Three architects are bidding to become MPs in the upcoming general election in May. Chris Phillips, of Colman Architects is standing for the Conservatives in Lewisham West & Penge and Mike Hibbs of the Liberal Democrats is hoping to win the seat of Basildon & Billericay. However, the candidate causing the biggest stir is Peter Phillips, (of no relation to Chris Phillips, Conservative) who is running for the BNP in Windsor. Speaking on the subject, Chris Phillips said: “They are entitled to their views, but I profoundly reject the views of a political party which has as its leader a Holocaust denier. I think it would reflect very badly on the profession if a BNP supporter was successful in any way under the guise of representing architects.”
