I was disappointed to read the text of Mr Hayes’ speech on being re-elected as MP for South Holland.

Regardless of personal political views, to describe UKIP as a ‘blot on civilized society’ is faintly bizarre and I would like to ask him to respond by explaining which of UKIP’s policies have ‘no place in civilized society’?

A grammar school in every town? Increased support for the NHS and our armed forces? Controlled immigration on a points system? Perhaps he regards Australia as uncivilized?

Mr Hayes has, perhaps unintentionally, insulted many of his constituents. Having always regarded him as a gentleman, this is not how I expected him to behave in his victory speech.
