Ex UKIP MEP claimed to be fighting EU fraud, but happy to defraud the UK tax payer

Ashley Mote, elected as a UKIP MEP just three years ago has been found guilty of fraud.

In this case UKIP took decisive action to ensure he was no part of their party, but after other UKIP MEP's problems involving fraud, it would make anyone wonder why electing a UKIP MEP serves any purpose at all.

Quite right, Nich -- and I hope that LibDem campaigners (for once probably joined by Tories!) will put the message across betwen now and 2009 that UKIP is worse than a waste of space.

Conservative campaigners already highlight UKIP's terrible record when talking to potential UKIP supporters on the doorsteps.
