    That this House believes that Amjad Bashir, until last week a UKIP member of the European Parliament who has now been warmly welcomed into the Conservative Party by its leader David Cameron, is unfit to represent the people of Yorkshire and the Humber because his word cannot be trusted; notes that while Bashir has denied that he was ever a member of the Respect Party the truth is that he was selected to stand in the Bradford Moor council ward in 2012 by the party but was then deselected when information about his past was revealed; further notes that not only was he a member of Respect but in his application claimed he had been a prominent Labour member and supporter in the 1970s and 1980s; understands that prior to his overnight conversion to the Conservatives he had been suspended by UKIP which he joined after his Respect rejection; and calls on the Government and the Conservative Party to declare to the voters of Yorkshire and the Humber that Amjad Bashir's relentless party switching and misrepresentation of his past makes him unfit to represent them, whichever party's colours he is temporarily wearing.
