Ukip candidate calls public meeting... in the wrong constituency

In recent years Northamptonshire's Conservative MPs have been drawn chiefly from the fruitcake wing of that party, which presents something of a challenge to Ukip.

How do they find a fruitcake who is even fruitier?

Easy. Step forward Jonathan Munday, the Ukip candidate for Wellingborough.

Dr Munday, who is a GP, has already came to wider notice last month after accusing a Twitter user of contributing nothing to the NHS except piles and STDs.

Now he has called a public meeting at a school in Irthlingborough and accused the Conservative and Labour candidates for Wellingborough of cowardice for declining to take part.

But their reluctance to attend may have something to do with the fact that Irthlingborough is in the Corby constituency.

On a similar note, David Burrows, the Conservative MP for Enfield Southgate, has been spotted canvassing for support in neighbouring Edmonton.
