The Ashley Mote saga becomes more hilarious by the minute!
Poor Ashley - the walking UKIP-embarrassment will be unable to assiduously represent his constituents in the European Parliament following his (disgracefully) early release from the slammer. The notoriously pompous Mr Mote will have his dignity further offended by being forced to wear an electronic tag and observe the home detention curfew scheme. The Ministry of Justice have confirmed that he won't be given special permission to attend to Parliament business in Brussels or Strasbourg saying - "he will not get any special treatment". Sheer comedy gold - you couldn't make it up!!!
To further extract the urine out of the taxpayer, Mote is appealing against the court order that he must pay back the £70,000 he conned out of the public purse. No doubt the funny fellow will stand for re-election in eighteen months time as well.
The boy Nigel frothed with faux rage at the news saying - "the whole episode is an outrage….I have never heard anything like it". Damn right Nigel - no rational person can believe this crook was selected by UKIP as one of their premier candidates.
