QUIRKY politician Neil Hamilton will be giving his UKIP party a European push with a whistle stop visit to Gibraltar next week.

Former Tory Hamilton, 65, campaign manager for the party, is helping to launch the party’s European election campaign.

Gibraltar comes under the South West constituency.

Hamilton, who was recently described by leader Nigel Farage as a ‘Backroom Boy’ will be joined by serving UKIP MEP Paul Nuttall.

It is not known if his formidable wife Christine will be joining him.
