Interviewer "why should people vote for you?" Cox "good question"!
I couldn't have said it better myself. So don't waste your vote on Cox who doesn't know why people should vote for him, vote for the candidate with a track record and a powerful vision for Watford, vote Dorothy!

Phil! Why couldn't you have stood as an independent?!
It was only this Sunday when it was said that UKIP's local manifestos would prove to be a strong point, devolved from the national party UKIP councillors were given free range to develop strong local policies apparently. But... the national party still casts a shadow.

UKIP will make us proud, its time for the earthquake on Thursday, the UKIP earthquake will rock UK politics!

lets get out of Europe, get rid of the imigrants, get the shirkers back to work and stop taxing all the business people, lets stop the new hospital and let the allotments stay where they are.

Its time we sent all the Romanians and Bulgarians home as well as the other illegal imigrants.

We are very independent locally and we produced our own local manifesto.

I am proud of being in UKIP, it is the only party that stands against the establishment and offers people a voice. If elected, I will be an independent Mayor because, as I have said before, it will be town before party each and every time.

An independent could not have stood and won in Watford, so the best chance of an independent Mayor is to vote UKIP this time.
