More on the alleged forged UKIP nomination paper in Norfolk

The BBC reports:

A newly-elected UKIP councillor, at the centre of an investigation into a forged electoral nomination paper, has said he has not “done anything wrong”.

Jonathon Childs, who won a seat on Norfolk County Council, reported ahead of the 2 May election that the signature on his form was not his.

The Eastern Daily Press has more on that quirk of the candidate themselves saying their own signature looked to be forged:

Mr Childs has not responded to requests for comment, but on his Twitter page – @jonathon_childs – he wrote he had approached the borough council with concerns himself.

Another user asked him: “R U saying someone forged your signature?”

On April 28 he replied: “I am aware of it that’s why I went to GYBC [Great Yarmouth Borough Council] !!

“That mark ain’t mine that’s why I went there.”

  1. Bizarre. Got to give him credit for being honest – his election will still be declared null and void though! Whoever signed it for him will be sweating somewhat…
    Any idea if it’ll be a proper by-election or a “re-run” a la Oldham East & Saddleworth?
