UKIP leader says Basingstoke MP Maria Miller should have been "sacked"

SHE should have been sacked – that was the view of the Basingstoke UKIP leader who is set to challenge Maria Miller for her seat at next year’s General Election.

UKIP Parliamentary candidate, Alan Stone told The Gazette: “She shouldn’t have resigned, she should have been sacked – that sums up how I feel. The Tories had enough time to sort out their finances, David Cameron should have had his teams expenses squeaky clean, there is no excuse for that.

“David Cameron was ill advised and he shouldn’t have let it go on as long as he did.”

When quizzed about Maria Miller’s apology published on The Gazette website yesterday, he added: “It was a pathetic cop out, I think it took the petition of people to get her to say that.”

“She was given a get out of jail free card – if that had happened to any of my staff, they would have been out of the door immediately. She has done wrong and she should have had to pay the whole £90,000 back.

“Without a question of doubt she should have co-operated with the investigation, she is a public servant and she should be doing better. I have been talking to people in Basingstoke and they are all very angry so they won’t vote for her next time.”

This is surely the end of her career - who would vote for her. I doubt she would stand again in Basingstoke. UKIP rightly see a great opportunity for a seat at Westminster.........
....one of more than a dozen at next years elections I would venture.

Good luck with the UKIP Public Meeting tonight Alan & Nigel (Farage) in Basingstoke.

Vote Alan Stone!

Do you truely believe all the drivel you read? Its obvious that the established political class control the media - too right that UKIP should get EU funds when they cost us £55 million a day they need at least £2 million over the course of 5 years to run a successful campaign to get us out of the EU! Just shows the EU up to be the inefficient wasteful system that it is by overpaying its MEP's!
