UKIP: UKIP announces Police candidates
From the official website:
We're delighted to unveil our full team of Police & Crime Commissioner candidates for the election on Thursday, November 15.
UKIP's National Co-ordinator for the PCC elections, Rob Burberry said: "Party activists have worked very hard over recent weeks to make sure that we have high-calibre candidates standing in the majority of areas across the country."
Party Leader, Nigel Farage MEP, said that these elections demonstrate a significant step forward for UKIP: "We will not be contesting these elections on a 'withdraw from the EU' ticket, but on a better, more responsive policing ticket.
"We are talking to people about their problems, listening to their concerns and proving once and for all that we are a party that has transformed itself into a serious player, with a broad range of interests."

I heard on TV that the Lib/Dems are not putting up any Police Commissioner candidates at all. This makes the above list look very impressive. Especially when the deposit is £5000 pounds per candidate.
What the TV said does not seem to be correct. There are lots of LibDem candidates for the job of Police Commissioner.
UKIP are obviously a Candidate to become the 3rd Party of this country. UKIP will put the final nail into the pro EU LIB-DEM coffin between now and the next GE.
2014, EU Election results for UKIP will be massive and provide the perfect spring board for the 2015 GE.
Any successes, or near misses, in these upcoming Police Cheif elections will be seen by the voter as further proof that UKIP are here to stay, and a force to be reckoned with for future of British politics.
This is going to be a very interesting 30 months run up to the GE in 2015.
Tin hat anyone?
No candidate in Cleveland as Northumbria and Durham are covered. Is it an omission or just 2/3 in the NE?
