UKIP’s first elected councillor in Hampshire, Hugh McGuinness, is to stand for Parliament in the constituency of East Hampshire.
The Chairman of the Eastleigh branch of UKIP is also a parish councillor for Fair Oak and Horton Heath where he was the only member of the council to vote against the renaming of the Fair Oak War Memorial as a ‘Peace’ memorial during the recent furore over it’s title.
Hugh was born in Middlesex and has lived in Hampshire for 30 years. Formerly employed in the IT industry, he has also served in the Territorial Army.
Hugh advises all floating voters not to vote for the 3 main parties saying:
“You were not given a vote over the Lisbon treaty nor a vote for a European President.”
“Voting for the 3 main parties means voting for the end of Democracy.”
