Row over Sikh school will lead voters to Ukip


A Conservative councillor has warned that residents in the village of Stoke Poges, in Buckinghamshire, could turn to Ukip after the Government overruled a planning inspector to allow a Sikh faith school to remain there. Eric Pickles ruled last month that the Khalsa Secondary Academy, which has been opposed by at least 200 local residents, should be allowed to stay. Councillor Trevor Egleton said: "Some will vote Ukip because of what has happened with the school in the hope that it will concentrate Pickles's mind." He said people opposed the academy on environmental grounds, not because they are “middle-class Nimbys or racists”.
