With the deadline for filing petitions against constituency results in the 2015 general election, only three have materialised:
- Tim Ireland, who stood as an independent, is petitioning against Nadine Dorries’s re-election in Mid-Bedfordshire, alleging “illegal practices by publishing false statements prior to the election”.
- Ruth Temple, who stood for the Magna Carta Conservation Party Great Britain in Woking, is petitioning against MP Jonathan Lord, claiming he was not eligible to stand.
- Fiona MacInnes and Tim Morrison in Orkney and Shetland have petitioned against re-elected MP Alistair Carmichael over the leaked Nicola Sturgeon memo.
Notably absent from that list is George Galloway and Bradford West, even though up until just a few hours before the deadline Galloway was still talking confidently of a petition against the result which saw him defeated.
