ALLEGATIONS of harassment levelled against a political campaigner have been dropped by police.

Steve Uncles, 44, from Wilmington, was arrested in July, suspected of sending hate mail to the Hayes home of Nadine Taylor, ex-wife of Fathers4Justice frontman Matt

O'Connor.

The English Democrats Party (EDP) campaigns manager was behind Mr O'Connor's bid to become Mayor of London for the nationalist party in the May London elections.

Mr O'Connor, who was given odds of 100-1 by bookies, pulled out at the last minute leaving EDP with no candidate and losing their £10,000 deposit.

Ms Taylor, 37, and Mr O'Connor, 41, alleged that Mr Uncles subsequently sent "distressing, malicious, abusive, hateful" emails, text messages and telephone calls.

Ms Taylor, who acted as her ex-husband's election agent, received one email comparing her loyalty to Mr O'Connor to that of Eva Brown to Hitler.

Hampshire Police have confirmed that they have now dropped the case against the English Democrats Party campaigns manager.

Mr Uncles has vowed to press Hampshire Police to charge Ms Taylor for wasting their time.
