Andrew Rosindell, newly returned MP for Romford, has said it was inevitable Ukip would increase its vote share but the gains were nothing like that party had anticipated.
Speaking from the election count in Hornchurch this morning he said: “It was nothing like they thought they were going to get and at the end of the day the people now have an MP who will fight for Romford.”
Speaking about his plans Mr Rosindell told those assembled the constituency had elected an MP who would stand up for Romford and Britain and fight to regain the country’s sovereignty.
He added: “I will support a Conservative government who will get our economy on track and our people back to prosperity.”
As polls predicted that the Conservative party could gain a majority he added: “It sounds like we’re doing much better than people predicted we are losing some seats but gaining many seats to.
“To get a majority would be fantastic it means we could get on with the job of doing the right thing for Britain without being held back by the smaller parties.”
Mr Rosindell said following the count he would be celebrating before getting some rest.
