The man is a right-wing extremist; anti-foreigner, anti-EU and anti-Moslem; and a convicted criminal.

In unrelated news, a number of Conservative MPs are under investigation about election expenses.

He sounds like the sort of chap the RWR revere. Poor old RWR's, no wonder they are a bitter old bunch.

How about him being a member of the SNP?

Or is that conjecture also false news?

Note to self, ask the Donald he will have all the Goss

If you have a look at his twitter, you will find he hates everyone, except a small proportion of those sharing his lifestyle, experience and mindset.

He's need quite an array of coloured triangles to identify all his enemies.

Which posters have been absent from GD recently?
 
He was jailed for making false statements, since when has that been a crime in this country.
 
what a strange question.

convicted of electoral fraud

But I see you are in Northern Ireland. Is it considered normal behaviour there?

I thought politicians making false statements was considered normal behaviour everywhere, how else do you explain the success of Tony Blair.
 
"A false instrument" is legal speak for a forged document .

Either a fake id /certificate/ or any other document that is used in a legal sense to obtain something
 
Someone should have told the poor bloke that you have to be elected before you can start making false declarations.
Maybe he thought he was filling in an expenses sheet.
 
It only applies if you are caught. Same as everywhere else.
