I am pleased to say that the Libertarian Party has endorsed Nikki's campaign here in Meriden. Over a pleasant lunch Nikki and I met the LPUK's Deputy Leader and had a very interesting meeting.
As a libertarian Nikki found it impossible to remain a part of UKIP's grouping in the EU parliament, which largely consists of right-wing authoritarians and assorted oddballs. In standing up and being counted, not wishing to be associated with homophobes, Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites, Nikki had the UKIP whip withdrawn. She has since been undemocratically run out of UKIP and is standing in Meriden as an independent under the banner of the Solihull and Meriden Residents Association.
