An engineer-turned-aspiring-politician, says his party is “shaking up the Westminster elite system”.

UKIP candidate Vince Peddle has lived in the city for a near 40 years, but was recently motivated to run for the MK South seat to “make the future bright” for his four children.

He said: “As a party we believe the people should have the power; they should be given the right to make major decisions, such as by having a local referendum.

“There needs to be more accountability in MK Council.”

If elected in May, the 56-year-old vows to reduce car parking charges, hold councillors to account and tackle immigration.

Mr Peddle added: “We are not anti-immigration as a party, but it’s all about numbers and the type of people who are moving here. Uncontrolled levels of immigration is just not sustainable.

“Apparently we have to build one house every seven minutes to maintain housing for the numbers of people arriving.

“If an immigrant wants to move to this country, we believe they should have private health insurance so they don’t put a strain on our NHS.”

And when asked how he thinks UKIP will do in the upcoming election, he said: “Nationally it has been quoted that we could get up to 100 seats.

“I think that is maybe unrealistic, but we need to spread our message and maximise our seats in the House.”

“There needs to be more accountability in MK Council.”
