On the 15th March in year 2000 I was a member of small group of Tatton UK Independence Party supporters who tavelled to London to meet Martin Bell. To younger or foreign readers Martin Bell won renown as a foreign and war correspondent with the BBC. In the 1997 general election he stood for Parliament as an Independent anti-sleaze candidate in the constituency of Tatton. He won, but regretably made an honourable pledge to serve just one term as MP.
