'Veritas', the latest vehicle for the (self-)promotion of Robert Kilroy Silk

I have so far refrained from joining in the comment about Veritas, the new political party founded by former Labour MP Robert Kilroy Silk (and more recently a UKIP MEP). However I cannot let pass the revelation that Anthony Bennett, the official leader of the new group, apparently formed a campaigning organisation, People's Campaign to Keep the Pound, with Ian Anderson, a former chairman of the National Front.

Mr Robert Kilroy Silk may have described members of UKIP, his erstwhile political home, as "rightwing fascist nutters", but it would appear that he still moves in circles which few would care to emulate, specially someone theoretically hopeful of having a positive impact on UK politics.
