THE UKIP general elections candidate for the Cotswolds,Chris Harlow has demanded that Geoffrey Clifton-Brown apologises for calling his party extremist in the House of Commons last week.

Mr Harlow has written to Mr Clifton-Brown asking him to take back the remarks made as a contribution to the Queen’s Speech which he feels are totally misrepresentative of UKIP.

He said in the letter: “Such a description of my party is unfair and inaccurate, and is certainly not based on any understanding of our current policies. I therefore call on you to publicly apologise for your intemperate remark.

“I should remind you that some 7,000 of your constituents voted for UKIP just two weeks ago, and they feel insulted by their MP’s dismissal of their genuine concerns in this way.”
