Another defection to UKIP

Chester City Ward Councillor, Richard Lowe, has defected from the Tories to UKIP.

In an article on his blog he explains that he hasn't joined UKIP because he's a disillusioned Tory but because he believes in UKIP.  He believes in low tax, small government and letting the electorate decide how they want their lives to be run which is why he's joined UKIP.

The media and the clueless LibLabcon like to paint UKIP as a party of protest voters and single issue campaigners but nothing could be further from the truth.  UKIP is full of people that joined UKIP because they agree with UKIP policies, not just because they're annoyed with Cast Iron Dave's latest transfer of sovereignty to the EU or Danny "Let's sell English forests but keep your hands of Scottish forests" Alexander's latest plan to sell off the family silver.

People join and vote for UKIP because they agree with what UKIP says and because they want UKIP representatives in government saying the things that normal people say but politicians won't.
