In a recent Blog on Labour in Pontypridd proudly using Ukip defector in their campaign I mentioned that said defector, was the Ukip Pontypridd candidate in the 2015 Andrew Tomkinson and that I was unable to say what part of Ukip's ethos he shared because I received no leaflets and he didn't turn up for for the hustings I attended.Maybe there was a reason
"We are certainly not expecting our 'paper candidates' to undertake such arduous tasks!"Just how many of those standing for Ukip are regarded as "Paper Candidates" is interesting
"I work in the media industry professionally."
Though h has admitted it was originally an agreement for himself to be a 'paper candidate' but has since wanted to get more involved.
Though it appears Mr Bennett who is likely to win a Regional seat seems adverse to meeting those who will be paying his wages if he is elected.
"Obviously some people don't like us and some people just aren't interested in politics. I don't really need to be imposing myself on them."
