Nikki Sinclair (ex-UKIP MEP)
ex-UKIP MEP Nikki Sinclair has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud the European Parliament for allegedly claiming road mileage but travelling on a much cheaper flight.
Nikki Sinclaire, from Meriden, West Midlands, was quizzed by detectives from West Midlands Police's Economic Crime Unit over allegations about her allowance and expense claims.
Miss Sinclaire, who was elected as a UKIP MEP for the West Midlands in June 2009, was arrested at a Birmingham police station on February 22nd 2012.
She had the UKIP whip withdrawn in 2010 following rows over policy, but continues to represent the region in the European Parliament as an independent.
Zultra's Notes: Although the grass roots of UKIP are Nationalists, the higher echelons aren't fond of Nationalists as they have restricted anyone affiliated with the BNP (and other similar groups) from joining.
