IT consultant Richard King is the UK Independence Party’s (Ukip) parliamentary candidate for Finchley and Golders Green.
The 54-year-old lives in Ilford with his wife and their 15-year-old daughter, who the couple adopted from India.
Mr King, who is self-employed and specialises in IT, project management and financial planning, is clear that solving many of the country’s problems depends on leaving the European Union (EU).
He said: “I believe in controlled immigration which benefits us all, but our tolerant society is now under threat by uncontrolled immigration on a scale never experienced before.
“How can we plan with our limited resources when 300,000 extra people are migrating to Britain every year?
