The campaign in Norwich North continues to hot-up with UKIP’s Leader Nigel Farage MEP and Norwich North by-election prospective candidate Glenn Tingle, signing up former Liberal Democrat county council candidate Corinne Russen. Corinne stood for the Sprowston Division in the election on 4th June 2009.

She has now joined the UK Independence Party having been impressed with the policies of the Party at the European Election. Corinne said: “I was surprised to discover that UKIP, with its agenda of fighting for British democracy and its genuine concern for the freedom of the individual is much more in tune with my views than the Liberal Democrats.”

Glenn Tingle, UKIP’s prospective parliamentary candidate for Norwich North said: “I am delighted that Corinne has joined us. I am sure she is going to be a major asset to the Party and, in particular, to my ‘Clean Start for Norwich North’ campaign. With our combined experience in local politics here in Norwich , we are going to be a formidable team. All we need now is for Gordon Brown to pull his finger out and set a date for the by-election.”
