Yet only a few weeks ago Priti Patel stood up in Parliament and said this (in a debate on Baroness Thatcher):
" As my father always said, she ushered in a new era of hope and optimism, and she was a strength for our country."
Its seems he was so impressed that he went and stood for the Tories rivals in elections.....
Update : It seems a u-turn has been preformed
Sushil Patel - dad of Tory MP Priti Patel - tells @sun_politics that he is standing down as a UKIP candidate....

As you were.....
Now it emerges Mr Patel has changed his mind again, and is running for UKIP, and is proud to do so.
