Dave’s Angry Floods Accuser Standing for UKIP

Readers will remember the angry Kent resident who let rip at Dave during the floods back in December. Well Ericka Olivares Penros, the lady in question, has just been announced as UKIP’s candidate in Marden and Yalding. Sounds like she is still quite angry:

“I have never been political but when David Cameron visited Yalding on 27th December and promised us ‘whatever it takes’ to repair our damaged homes and take the necessary steps to ensure the floods do not happen again, I was incensed. It was the first time we had seen the emergency services, despite having no electricity and being 3ft under water. He strode in with his entourage and the emergency services, for a photo call. I was promised by him and the Lib Dems’ Danny Alexander, that we would receive a £5,000 grant. That turned out to be a lie, it is now going to be a loan but not for flood damage, for flood defence work and I don’t believe that will happen either.”

Best of all, as far as Guido can tell she doesn’t have Twitter…

Quote of the Day

Boris as Hulk…

‘Banner might be bound in manacles, but when provoked he would explode out of them. Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be – and that is the case for this country. We will come out on October 31 and we will get it done.’
