David is still persisting in repeating the lie that he is the great, great nephew of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, Liberal Prime Minister between 1905 and 1908.
Even the newspapers continue to repeat the lie: LINK
Here are the facts:
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman had no children. Bannerman is not his great, great nephew.
On Bannerman’s Bombay birth certificate his first names are David Campbell and his surname is Bannerman. He used to be known as David Bannerman. When he stood in Scotland (1997) it suddenly became David Campbell-Bannerman (with a hyphen). See: LINK
When he stood in 2001 for the Tories in Warrington and Leamington he reverted to David Bannerman

The fable about being the great, great nephew of the dead prime minister wasn't used again until he joined UKIP.
Independence, Issue 63, Dec. 2005
A New Chairman
As some of you may have heard, UKIP has a new party chairman who will take office in January. David Campbell-Bannerman, a great nephew of former Liberal Prime Minister Henry Campbell-Bannerman. David is a senior PR consultant who is looking forward to taking up this new challenge. David contested North Cornwall for UKIP at the general election earlier this year. The January issue of Independence will feature more on David, but for now I am sure you will join me in wishing him all the best.
David Bannerman’s Wickipedia entry has been re-written to remove any mention of him being a great nephew. How strange!
This Tory failure and serial liar only came over to UKIP after being promised the chance to become a lead MEP candidate in a ‘safe' region.
The words 'lying scum’ do rather spring to mind when one thinks of Mr Bannerman.
David was recruited as an extra in the Oscar-winning film ‘Chariots of Fire’. He often bores people by telling them that he can be seen staring at Eric Liddell’s bum during a crowd scene.
Claims to have been a key player in the Northern Ireland ‘peace process’. Rather strange that none of the real key players can remember him.
He was heavily involved in the rigging of the MEP selection process. He made it known that he would continue to employ Peter Reeve as his RO if elected to Brussels.
Peter Reeve later sat on the panel that allowed David Bannerman to become an MEP candidate. Peter Reeve is still the RO for the Eastern Region. We will let you draw your own conclusions from that!
Bannerman is currently under investigation by OLAF after it was revealed that he was illegally paying Peter Reeve out of his MEP allowances. See: LINK
