English Democrats regional leader Steve Uncles convicted of election fraud

The south east of England regional leader of the English Democrats has been convicted of 9 counts of electoral fraud and is facing a prison sentence.

Steve Uncles invented people to put forward as candidates for the 2013 local elections, even writing up fictitious personal profiles for them. When he was caught he made up a story about it being a plot by UKIP to discredit him. As well as making people up he forged signatures for people who do exist.

He has been granted conditional bail with a curfew and told to put his affairs in good order because he's probably going to prison.
