UKIP Chooses Local Boy Who Made Good For Key By Election



Ukip leader Nigel Farage said: “He’s a local boy who really cares about the community he is from and has incredible experience working in international business which sets him in very good stead to be a brilliant parliamentarian.”


Meet John Bickley, UKIP’s candidate for the Wythenshawe and Sale East by election

  • He isn’t from the public sector
  • He didn’t go to Eton
  • He didn’t get a non job in PR from a relative’s contacts to get “business experience”
  • He wasn’t the son of a former minister
  • He wasn’t an MP’s “research assistant” who then worked briefly for a pseudo charity
  • He wasn’t a TV presenter
  • He didn’t pay £50,000 for a “face to face” with David Cameron
  • He didn’t cross over to UKIP a few months ago because of the floods
  • He has been a local UKIP activist for three years
  • He grew up on a local council estate
  • His family was staunch old fashioned Labour
  • His first job was as a lab technician
  • He is now a rich man from his own efforts in business
  • He is a family man
  • He is 60 years old

In other words he hasn’t just talked the talk – he has walked the walk…

Imagine – once upon a time almost all MPs were like John Bickley

Sounds like he would make a bloody good MP….
