Robert Kilroy-Silk to fight Geoff Hoon for Veritas - (Telegraph report)

According to this report in today's newspaper:

Robert Kilroy-Silk is to mount a high-profile move to unseat Geoff Hoon, the Defence Secretary, as he gears up to launch his own political party. The item is linked here.

Mr Kilroy-Silk is poised to turn his back on the UK Independence Party and launch his own political party named Veritas, the Latin for truth.

He will quit Ukip at a public meeting tomorrow and condemn the Ukip leadership for failing to mount a proper general election campaign.

Veritas is likely to be launched in a couple of weeks to make a real impact in the election, expected on May 5.

It has emerged that Mr Kilroy-Silk is considering standing as the Veritas candidate in Mr Hoon's Ashfield constituency in Nottinghamshire on a platform of truth and honesty against the Defence
Secretary's reputation for evasiveness.

Despite Mr Hoon's 13,268 majority, the Ashfield move would give him a high-profile seat to fight. Ukip has dismissed Veritas as a vehicle for Mr Kilroy-Silk and not a proper party.
