RICHARD (TOBY) COKE, MID NORFOLK UKIP CANDIDATE

Richard (Toby) Coke has certainly had a varied life as a Scots Guardsman, a career in the City, working in Canada and America and running the family and woods.

And Mr Coke, 56, is now running the “Extreeme Adventure” high ropes course at Weasenham, where he was born and still lives.

Typical of UKIP candidates, Mr Coke is forthright in his views.

“This country now desperately needs politicians with principles and beliefs. Recent events have shown how little of these essential characteristics can be found in the current Westminster political elite. The nation has had enough of career politicians who don't believe in anything but climbing the greasy pole.”

Mr Coke - who has two daughters aged six and eleven - said he is “fundamentally opposed to the climate change scam which is causing fuel poverty and the monstrous wind turbines that threaten so much of our most picturesque countryside.”
