Village Hall hustings speaker becomes UKIP leader.

One of the candidates who spoke at the hustings for the post of Kent Police and Crime Commissioner in Hollingbourne Village Hall in April 2016 has been elected the leader of UKIP. Mr Henry Bolton OBE, a former army officer and member of Thames Valley Police, was won of the speakers at the election hustings organised by Hollingbourne Parish Council. This formed part of the 2016 Annual Parish Assembly.

The election result was announced today at the UKIP Conference in Torquay where he won 30% of the vote. In the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in May 2016, Mr Bolton was beaten by Mr Matthew Scott who was the Conservative Candidate and who pledged to lobby Government so that any costs arising from future Operation Stacks on the M20 would not fall on the council tax payers of Kent.
