I stood as a candidate for CLEAR Cannabis Law Reform in the 2012 Corby by-election. At the count I had the pleasure of speaking to Nigel on a number of occasions. He was nipping out to the car park for a cigarette and I was letting my dogs out of my car for a wee.
We got on very well and I found him truly charming and genuine. We talked about many things but of course I asked him about his views on cannabis. He agreed that present policy is “Barmy!” and that “Of course we should!” adopt a legalise, tax and regulate policy.
The really extraordinary thing about Nigel expressing these views is that they are unpopular with most UKIP supporters. That marks him out as a very rare thing in UK politics – a man of true integrity.
For two reasons:
1. Because I agree completely that we should withdraw from membership of the EU and establish trading agreements as an independent nation.
2. Because I want to send a message to the main parties showing my disgust for the venal and corrupt behaviour of so many MPs.
I shall vote Tory in the next general election because David Cameron is the only credible candidate for PM.
