UKIP today announces that it will be contesting the Buckingham parliamentary constituency at the next election against the new Speaker in the House of Commons, the Conservative MP John Bercow.
"John Bercow is not the man to bring the much needed transparency and honesty to Parliament," said UKIP Leader Nigel Farage.
"His own behaviour over expenses claims, second-house flipping and the rest have made him untenable as a long-term choice.
"We in UKIP will therefore be standing against him at the next election.
"Our prospective candidate is Dave Fowler, 57, who has lived in the area all his life and runs his own plumbing business there.
"Buckingham needs a voice, not a Speaker, so we will take Bercow on and when we defeat him, Parliament will have an opportunity to think again."
