Conservative Bernard Jenkin MP was left with egg on his face this evening after people failed to turn up to an anti-European Union meeting which the MP been invited to speak at.
‘Grassroots Out’, an anti-EU group also supported by UKIP Leader and unelectable-as-an-MP Nigel Farage, invited Bernard Jenkin MP to talk in favour of leaving the EU at a meeting at Colchester Town Hall.
Just three guests turn up to the meeting despite chairs for some 200 being put out. Ouch!
