THE LABOUR candidate for South Basildon and East Thurrock, Mike Le Surf has poured scorn on the latest Ukip candidate for the constituency.
Mr Le-Surf said: "After months of disarray and ridicule Ukip have now selected their latest candidate to stand in the South Basildon and East Thurrock constituency.
"Residents know that Ukip have been a disaster throughout this process and in local government.
"I am focussing my campaign on fighting the current Conservative MP and have been speaking to residents about their real concerns.
"Labour will increase the minimum wage to Â£8 an hour and abolish the bedroom tax which will help many residents in the constituency."
