UKIP PPC & Former YI Leader Wannabe Drops a Clanger.

It seems as though whilst spending all his time running for the position of Chairman of Young Independence, Gosport's UKIP PPC Chris Wood forgot to do homework on his own backyard.

Despite Wood, 25, promising improvements and investment to Gosport Town Centre, the UKIP PPC, who was elected on to Hampshire County Council for the nearby parish of Stubbington last May, has not attended a single council or public meeting on the issue of the High Street in Gosport to date, TBG can reveal.

Conservative Chairman of the Economic Development Committee Stephen Philpott has in the same time period been working with no-less than twenty local businesses promoting the re-generation of the High Street and the Town Centre.

Stephen told TBG - "Mr Wood may be knowledgeable about matters in Stubbington but I would advise him not to make public pronouncements on things in Gosport that he clearly knows nothing about."
