Peace protester to stand for seat
Brian Haw
Mr Haw has been protesting in the square for almost four years
Parliament Square peace protester Brian Haw is to stand for the Cities of London and Westminster seat in the general election, he has announced.

Mr Haw, from Redditch, Worcs, has kept a vigil in the square for almost four years and is an independent candidate.

He faces Labour's Hywel Lloyd, Lib Dem Marie-Louise Rossi, Tory Mark Field, Jillian McLachlan of Christian Peoples Alliance and Green Tristan Smith.

UKIP's Colin Merton and David Harris of Veritas are also standing.

Mr Haw says he is standing because of opposition to his ongoing anti-war protest and attempts to remove him.

He said: "As a parliamentary candidate I will give my all as an advocate of people's needs and rights.

"I would use my experience and knowledge, gained from all the good people I have met on this pavement, to help change the way our society is run."
