So, not content with electing convicted benefit fraudster Ashley Mote it seems that fraud is something that runs in the UKIP family.
Clive Page was UKIPs press officer during the Hartlepool by-election in 2004, when UKIP councillor Stephen Allison beat the Tories into third place to achieve UKIP's best ever by-election result. He was then appointed as UKIP's Deputy Communications Director. Just months earlier, Page had been sentenced to an 80 hour community punishment order after being convicted of over £5,000 worth of benefit fraud.
A poor man's Ashley Mote - now there's a novelty!
