I am delighted and honoured to have been selected as a UKIP candidate for the MEP elections in 2014. Roughly 200 candidates applied, and this has now been whittled down to the final 60. My assessment score was the 7th best in the country.
The members’ ballot comes next. UKIP members from all over the UK can vote in the members’ ballot (if you’re not a member, why not join online here). Members will have 10 votes, ranked in order. They can vote for candidates across the country, so even if you live in a different region, you could vote for a candidate in your area as your no.1 choice and me for no.2 – helping us both to get elected.
The team of candidates all over the country is very strong, so I wish all the best to all my ‘opponents’. Of course, they’re not really opponents because we’re all on the same side and working together for the same cause in 2014.
