Between 2013 and 2017 he led UKIP through what might be termed its finest hour in Cambridgeshire having won 12 seats on the county council.
But with that now a dim and distant memory (UKIP lost all their seats) and a failed bid to become the elected Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Paul Bullen has been selected as Brexit Party Parliamentary candidate for NE Cambs.
Should a snap election be called anytime soon Mr Bullen will find his name on the ballot box with that of Brexit Secretary and MP for NE Cambs, Steve Barclay.
Mr Bullen posted to Facebook last night: "Just been selected as the Brexit Party PPC for North East Cambs.
"What a great place to represent. Bring on the election so that we can change British politics for the better and truly leave the undemocratic EU."
