Laura Sandys, Conservative MP for South Thanet, has taken the extraordinary step of attacking UKIP via the left wing Hope Not Hate organisation.

In a letter sent to residents on the Hope Not Hate letterhead, Sandys says: “Unfortunately we have UKIP’s Nigel Farage here who plays on divisions rather builds communities… I would implore you to reject UKIP’s politics of fears and instead choose hope….”

Sandys is standing down as MP after this election. The Tory who is running for the seat is Craig Mackinlay, who was actually one of the founders of UKIP.
