Boxing promoter backs 'Britian'

BOXING promoter Frank Maloney launched an eye-catching campaign to become an MP yesterday with posters which misspelt Britain.

Posters and leaflets bore the slogan "Frank Maloney – Fighting for Barking and Fighting for Britian".

Maloney said the misspelling was deliberate. "I did that on purpose just to see how many people pay attention. It causes interest." He said he joined UKIP as he believes "Britain should control itself and run its own borders and decisions should be made from Westminster".

Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, is expected to be among Maloney's rivals for the London seat.
