Kellie Maloney says a vote for UKIP would be ‘wasted’
Former UKIP candidate Kellie Maloney wants people to vote for the Conservatives in the general election.
Speaking to Sky News, Ms Maloney – who stood for UKIP in the 2004 London mayoral elections – said she thinks UKIP were “not going to get enough seats to wield any power.
“The way to stop a Labour/SNP coalition is for Labour voters to switch and vote for UKIP.
“If we want to stop Labour and the SNP I think you’ve got to vote Tory. A vote for UKIP would be quite wasted, I believe.”
The former boxing promoter also spoke about problems UKIP faced in winning voters over: “They seem to have no control. Some of the stuff that comes out from some of the UKIP people – I mean no normal person in the street could accept that, and I think that is their downfall.
“It’ll be interesting if Nigel gets into the House of Commons. It’ll be quite fun I think.”
Speaking on trans issues, she said: “We are probably where the gay community were 25 years ago, and we can learn a lot from the gay community.
“But it would be nice to hear political parties speak up on civil rights and gender issues.”
