THE LEFTIE Mirror-owned Daily Express made a whopping mistake in today’s edition, claiming that UKIP was standing just 16 candidates in the upcoming local elections.
In reality, the party is standing a whopping 1,420 candidates in England and Nothern Ireland.
The paper was accused of a possible ‘deliberate’ smear, to damage UKIP’s chances across the country as voters are expected to ‘bring UKIP back from the dead’, in revenge for Theresa May’s Brexit Betrayal.
UKIP leader Gerard Batten took to Twitter and said: “This is in today’s Daily Express, page 7, ‘UKIP only standing 16 candidates in local elections’. We are standing 1,420 in England & N.Ireland. Is this a typo, incompetence, or deliberate?”
