I’m beginning to think that it matters little if I only post a tokenry few listings of defectors from Ukip as the party in its present leaderless and backerless state is increasingly irelevant.
Ukip has never had much of a role in British politics with its failure to make a mark at Westminster, the absence of representation in Scotland, the fact that there is no one of any stature or merit in Wales with their two squabbling leaders, the paucity of offices held in English Councils (and of course the rate at which they defect).
Notable also is the fact that all they seem to have as backer now is the apparent carousel funding of Alan Bown, who you will remember seems to get back much of his funding via various printing & supply companies he seems to have an interest, and who on one occasion, when he had moved out of his marital home dumping his wife in favour of one of his betting shop manageresses making much protestation of being a Christian (whatever that is in his mind!), at that time he even forgot to vote for Ukip in a national election despite effectively having bought himself a position on Ukip’s NEC!
As for leadership it is hard to decide whether Ukip supporters should laugh or cry when they realise that the very best they could manage to get was the implausible, unelectable, corrupt scoundrel & general self serving acalley Paul Nuttal!
Just for the record anyway – here is another County Councillor following the example of Ukip’s only MP Douglas Carswell and numerous Couynty Councillors defecting from Ukip.
UKIP county councillor Daniel McNally has defected to the Conservative Party, it has been announced.
The councillor – who represents Louth Marsh – was officially welcomed to the party as a member following an Executive Council meeting last Tuesday.
He will now stand as a Conservative candidate for the Saltfleet and the Cotes seat in the election on May 4.
Cllr Craig Leyland, chairman of the Louth and Horncastle Conservatives Association, said: “This is great news and shows the strength of the Conservatives both locally and nationally.
“Councillor McNally is a hard-working councillor and will be an asset to the group and party locally.”
Councillor Martin Hill, Leader of Lincolnshire County Council said that the defection of Cllr McNally to the Conservatives was ‘a great addition’ to their Lincolnshire team.
He said: “We always knew Daniel was a Tory at heart and we are sure he will work hard for all his residents.”
The defection comes just days after UKIP’s only Member of Parliament, Douglas Carswell, resigned from the party to become independent.
It also follows the decision of Boston Borough councillor David Brown to defect to the Conservatives, which took place in January.
