UKIP Candidate Guilty of Electoral Fraud

Hugh Mennie, who ran to be a councillor in Cambridge in May, has confessed to forging three of the eight signatures on his nomination form. His lawyer managed to come up with possibly the worst ever excuse for trying to rig an election in mitigation:

“He was running out of time to submit the form. He had found the area in which he lives and people there were lacklustre about politics.”

So who cares about democracy eh. Mennie has been banned from running for election for five years. What will the people of Arbury do without him?
