I would like to thank the 409 residents who supported me in the recent County Council elections. Furthermore I would like to pay particular tribute to my supporters who had the courage to display a board in their gardens as I fully appreciate the unjustified comments, abuse and threats which can result from being associated with UKIP.
I was also disturbed and saddened by the biased reporting of the EDP and the liberal use of “fake news” during this campaign. You may consider all this to be “sour grapes” but I challenge you to publish this letter to enable the people to decide.
Defeated UKIP County Councillor
