Robert Blay, a UKIP parliamentary candidate standing in North East Hampshire was caught on camera threatening to shoot his conservative rival, Ranil Jayawardena.

Mr Blay, a former Tory candidate himself, was unaware he was speaking to an undercover reporter. So what got him so worked up? Well, he doesn’t believe Mr Jayawardena should represent people in this country, as his family have only been here since the 70s. Mr Blay also believes his Tory counterpart deliberately knocked up his wife just before the election in order to win more votes. Brilliant.

A spokesman for UKIP has since announced that Mr Blay has been suspended with immediate effect following the incident.

Separately, a UKIP candidate standing in Tony Blair’s old seat is facing calls for suspensions after offensive remarks about the Independent columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown resurfaced from last year. John Leathley, UKIP’s parliamentary candidate in Sedgefield, stated online that Ms Alibhai-Brown “needs a good shag” while she was appearing on the BBC’s Question Time programme.

Mr Leathley has since apologised:

I would like to apologise unreservedly to Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. I read what I wrote now, I am shocked by them and am appalled and deeply ashamed of my words.
