In 2014 he joined UKIP and stood as parliamentary candidate in Ealing Southall in 2015 and 2017. He campaigned independently during the referendum so as to promote his own literature, helping to achieve 40% for Leave across the London Borough of Ealing. 

John regards himself as a centre radical and opposes all forms of discrimination. His blog can be found at https://jepoynton.com
