GLENN Tingle, the UK Independence Party's parliamentary candidate for Norwich North, has committed himself full time to his 'Clean Start for Norwich North' by giving up his job as a contracts manager for a local engineering company.

He said: “I did not feel that I could fully commit myself as a candidate, while trying to hold down a job. For me, the 'Clean Start for Norwich North' campaign is far too important to be going at it with anything less than 100% concentration.

“It was also unfair to my employer. The voters are crying out for a fresh start and they won't get that from any of the other parties.”

Mr Tingle said: “The Tories have chosen a youngster, who works in London and who has very limited knowledge of local issues and the Liberal Democrats have brought in a candidate from another local constituency. The Labour Party is in meltdown.”

Mr Tingle will sign the clean campaign pledge which is also backed by the Greens and the Tories.
