The UK Independence Party has selected Nick Lincoln, the Watford branch chairman, to run for the town’s Parliamentary seat next year.

The 45-year-old, who owns a finance business, was elected at a party hustings last night.

Following his selection Mr Lincoln said: “I am delighted that the Watford UKIP members have elected me to challenge to become the MP for Watford in 2015. This seat has changed hands several times in recent history and is currently a closely fought three-way marginal, but that is about to change.

“In the recent Mayoral election, starting from nowhere, we pushed the Conservatives into fourth place showing that in a town wide vote we have very strong support which will inevitably make life very difficult for Richard Harrington come the General Election.”

UKIP has stood in the town in last three General elections and never won more than 2.6 per cent of the vote.

However in the last few years the party has enjoyed a surge in the polls nationally that has seen it win around 15 per cent of the vote across Watford in the last two local elections.

Mr Lincoln said the party had been buoyed by its increased vote share in the town in recent years.

He added that the party now saw the chance of winning the Watford seat next year from Conservative Richard Harrington as “a real possibility”.

Mr Lincoln added: “Encouragingly, our results in the May council elections, where we took second place in five of the twelve wards, clearly demonstrated that we are also starting to drain support from the Lib Dems and Labour.

“More and more people from right across the political spectrum are supporting UKIP and, if the present growth continues, it is very likely that come May 2015 we will have turned Watford into the country’s first ever four-way marginal seat.

“I would love to be the first UKIP MP to represent Watford and the exciting part is that what seemed unimaginable five years ago is now a real possibility.”

Mr Lincoln will join Labour’s Matt Turmaine as a challenger to Mr Harrington, who won the seat with a 1,425 majority in 2010.

The Liberal Democrats, who came a close second in Watford in the last General Election, are still yet to select their candidate.

Remember Nick. EVERY post that PC puts on here will reflect on you. The very same electorate that did not vote for him to be our Mayor will again be called upon make a decision next year.

The Cox/Lincoln Mayoral campaign was laughable. Between them they snatched defeat from defeat. The Ministry of Silly Walks Department, abolition of all parking charges etc.. all at no cost to council tax payers was so easily seen through. IF Lincoln wants to be a serious candidate he needs to reign in the loose cannons.

I won't be voting for RIchard in 2015, only because he will be the conservative candidate..
BUT I think he's doing a great job working for Watford, I only hope that the next MP whatever party, will work as hard

Not a complete fan of Mr Lincoln but anyone who stands up to Lib/Lab/Con deserves respect.

The tectonic plates of politics changes in May 1997 when Tony Bliar got elected, and Mr Bliar and Mr Cameron and Compo, or is it Cleggy are responsible for UKIP's growth.

Well if you want debt fuelled economics, slavish adherence to the EU, potential illegal pointless foreign conflicts and Mass Immigration carry on and vote Lib/Lab/Con.

You may have a point which is lost on Nascot.

'Mr Lincoln said the party had been buoyed by its increased vote share in the town in recent years'. Phil Cox's recent humiliation included in that statement?

Surely humiliation is a reflection of what's happened to the grass roots Cons under Harrington's reign. Strange how he is not aware that the Conservative showing was abysmal eg 4th in the Mayoral and the abandonment of 11 wards ? The Cons used to have a majority of 700 in Nasocot and are now down to a mere 600 votes in total.

Harrington policies include 'intelligently' voted to bomb Assad in Syria which even Obama refrained from doing. The Health Campus has no new hospital despite 'safe' promises. He does not support taxing the bonuses of bankers or a referendum on the tax draining EU.

If you are that concerned perhaps you should ask the Liberal's who are in power about it, As anyone would know, but obviously not you, UKIP would have had tougher restrictions on UK entry maybe it would have happened maybe it wouldn't, Why don't you ask a sensible question of the LibLabCon though, why have they allowed our sovereignty to be all but ceded to Brussels from the 1st November 2017, are you one of the deluded that still thinks Cameron and Co will actually grant a referendum in 2017 ( if all of his conditional criteria are met, very unlikely ), then you really are suffering a major brain bypass, after the 1st November the EU will veto everything they see fit for us Brits not to have a say in, goggle QMV on 1st November and be very afraid of where the ensuing EUSSR, but if you are only concerned about a BJ down a back alley, think again when the likes of Turkey and co join the EU and have free unrestricted access because you'll probably have it cut off than receiving the pleasure but you'll still pay for the pleasure.

One thing I would expect everyone who believes in democracy to agree on is that it is good to have a party who wants to take the UK out of the EU standing in Watford.

We are all lucky to be geographically joined to the European continent with its glorious mix of people, culture, language and history on our doorstep. Increasingly though, more and more now recognise that the EU political model that is trying to turn the whole continent into one giant uniform country resembling the old USSR is hopelessly flawed and is slowly destroying our historic economic advantages that made us ordinary folk prosperous.

Its farcical attempt at heading for financial unity, starting with the euro, has been an utter disaster for jobs and the livelihoods of ordinary people right across Europe.

Its effective dismantling of state borders has been wonderfully useful for the rich and the corporate businesses but has created huge imbalance as much of Eastern Europe has been emptied of its young and talented people, separating families and threatening their future prosperity whilst countries like Britain are splitting at the seams as myriads of towns such as Watford suffer major infrastructure shortages in housing, roads, schools and hospitals.

Until the rise of UKIP, those who had foreseen the threat to ordinary people's futures posed by the self-serving EU had no party to represent them and no means to voice their opposition to the political juggernaut operating out of Brussels where so much of our lives are controlled from.

This coming election will be fascinating because at last voters who are appalled at the EU's incompetence at giving away Europe's prosperity to rising economies around the globe now have a credible party to support that, unlike others, does not constantly fudge the EU issue. We do not want to be part of a failing political model. No arguments, we want out and a return to the proven and more prosperous free trade model.

Ten months is a long time in politics, but with momentum going our way, I predict that Nick Lincoln and UKIP are going to do very well in Watford in 2015.

I think everyone should watch out David Penn clearly has some secret polling data that shows that UKIP have not in fact had a sharp fall in support since the Euro Elections.
Clearly he has infomation at hand that dismisses the notion that UKIP peaked at Eastliegh, that the electorate is reverting to a polarized one, that if his party could not get one Watford cllr in 2014 it won't in 2015.
Indeed we have all been wrong to assume that becouse various members and followers of UKIP are rabid Islamaphobes, homophobes, racists and sexist that UKIP is in anyway like that, no all those types on Twitter, Facebook etc are nowt to do with UKIP nor are the BNP voters that voted UKIP in the Euro's, why becouse we have the very nice Mr Lincoln.
Maybe if you guys shout that your party is not racist long enough people might not notice the views of your lead politiceans like the one who wants a special register for Muslims and that other MEP who used to right such wonderfull editorials at the Express

What link are you trying to make between UKIP/Muslims/Daily Express.

This is a silly attempt to steer people away from vitally important political topics like Mass Immigration and the EU.
