ANOTHER TORY COUNCILLOR DEFECTS to UKIP!

A local government official in North West England who was the Tory leader in that region has defected to UKIP!  David Potts had withering criticism for his former leader, PM David Cameron:

“I believe David Cameron is a spineless prime minister, and I deeply regret having supported his bid for the party leadership.”

“UKIP is the only party talking sense. I know that I can do more as a UKIP politician than I ever could as a Conservative.”

Potts, who is 29, had been a Tory leader since age 14 and felt it was a tough decision to switch parties:

He added: “Nigel Farage MEP, the UKIP leader, has consistently and correctly predicted the economic Armageddon that we face in Europe at the moment. This was not an easy decision to make. I had been a Tory Party member since the age of 14.

He also encouraged others to follow suit.  UKIP leader Nigel Farage praised Potts as a leader of the future.  I believe he could well be although Potts might have to assure people that the drinking problem he considered leaving politics for in January is under control.

In January, the currency trader exclusively told the Gazette he was quitting politics, after he revealed he was an alcoholic.

There are now 24 UKIP local officials in the UK.  I expect that number to rise.  When with a number of MPs join them?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
