Bob Spink MP and UKIP

Rumours abound that the above MP might join UKIP but in view of various allegations flying about this might be problematic for the party.

It might be helpful to consider the following comment posted on the Guido blog:

I stood against Bob as Labour candidate in Castle Point in 2005 and with my LD counterpart exposed his "send them back" advert nationally.

I deplore his views on Europe and immigration but would defend his personal integrity.

He was threatened with deselection not because of his views on national issues but because he offended powerful local business interests in the building trade by opposing planning applications that were not in the interests of his constituents.

He has made allegations of political corruption in Castle Point that chime with what local residents told me on the doorstep and need proper investigation by both the public authorities and the Tory Party.

If this is verified then it would appear Dr Spink, in view of his voting record read here, would make a good candidate as UKIP's first representative in the Commons.
