Peter Smith, a UKIP Councillor from Thurrock, will be standing for Parliament on the 8th June to represent the 17,410,742 who voted to leave the EU.
Cllr Peter Smith said: “I’m standing for Parliament to give the voters of Rayleigh and Wickford an alternative voice. We need an independently minded UKIP voice who can hold the Tories to account to ensure the real Brexit we deserve.
“We currently see the Conservative’s backsliding on all the promises they made during the referendum. They are talking about continuing free movement after Brexit. They plan to continue paying into the EU once we leave.”
“Also they seem content to pay the EU a divorce bill of over £50bn. If you want a real, clean Brexit, there is only one choice on the ballot paper, vote UKIP and get an MP that stands up for you.”
