NORTH West Norfolk's Labour candidate has blasted Gordon Brown, calling him "the worst Prime Minister" Britain has ever had. Speaking from his Leicester home, Manish Sood (38), told the Lynn News: "Immigration has gone up which is creating friction within communities. The country is getting bigger and messier.
"The role of ministers has gone bureaucratic and the action of ministers has gone downhill – it is corrupt.
"The loss of social values is the basic problem and this is not what the Labour Party is about.
"I believe Gordon Brown has been the worst Prime Minister we have had in this country.
"It is a disgrace and he owes an apology to the people and the Queen."
In his pledge he has promised to "get back to basics" and "clean up the system" if chosen to represent the area. He added that immigration had caused "overcrowding" in Britain and the increase in people claiming benefits.
Mr Sood said: "We have to get back to basics where people can leave their money outside for the milkman without it being stolen."
The councillor – who wants Britain to return to how it was in the 1970s – has also promised to control religious education and institutions, regenerate farming and industry and give more powers to the police and teachers.
He also believes The Queen should have more respect and say in government decisions as well as bringing back the death penalty.
But Mr Sood did praise Mr Brown for lowering the interest rates for mortgage owners.
Leader of West Norfolk Council's Labour group, Councillor Andy Tyler,
said: "I disagree completely. I think Gordon Brown is the best, most experienced and most capable of all three main candidates."
From the start of the election campaign, Mr Sood declared the seat was "unwinnable" when speaking to the media.
But in the 1997 general election the Labour candidate, George Turner, beat the Conservative candidate, Henry Bellingham, with a 1,339 majority. In 2001 Mr Bellingham – who had been MP for the area before Dr Turner – was voted back in with a 3,485 majority.
