UKIP candidate did very well

UKIP’s Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner candidate Tony Armstrong achieved 15.3 per cent of the Sussex PCC vote, which was an excellent result, particularly when you consider that the average of the 24 UKIP PCC candidates’ share of the vote across the country was 7.3 per cent.

The Conservatives, who got 31 per cent of the vote in Sussex, must have spent a fortune on their 250,000 manifestos.

In comparison UKIP Mid Sussex only had a budget for 5,000 manifestos.

So jolly well done Tony Armstrong!

Thank you to everyone who voted for Tony Armstrong and to all the UKIP members and supporters who helped with his campaign.
