Disabled candidate rejected from actively standing (excuse the pun!)


I've always thought most UKIPPERs were nasty authoritarian xenophobes, but they have sunk to a new depth this week. Lib Dem Voice is reporting how they have told a disabled candidate that he cannot actively stand for election because "he can't deliver leaflets". He is, though, being allowed to stand as a 'paper' candidate. I think I've got more chance of winning the lottery every week for the next year (even though I don't participate) than this story appearing on UKIPHome...

Correction: The story was on ukiphome yesterday with a copy of the emails that exposed the whole story to be a blackmail attempt to stop ukip fielding a candidate against this guy's daughter. Sorry, it doesn't fit the ongoing smear campaign.

Great minds today Justin, I have just written about UKIP too - but then who hasn't? I have taken a different line about someone you might even know.

Justin, there is more, much more to this than the headline implies. UKIP home HAVE covered the story and it is enlightening. Put simply, it appears that the guy has set UKIP up in an attempt to stop them fielding a candidate against his daughter who is NOT a UKIP councillor.

Check out my blog for more info.

Jack stood for UKIP in 2005.

UKIP are now calling Jack a tory sleeper cell.

UKIP are fruitcakes.

No-one comes out of this nasty sordid little story looking good, it has to be said.
