Thurrock Tory says Vote UKIP!

Thurrock's Tories are revolting ... and I mean that in the nicest possible way!

As recently as last month, Councillor Stuart St Clair-Haslam defected to UKIP from the Conservatives after a year of sitting in an Independent Conservatives group set up with another three Conservative councillors on Little Thurrock Council.

Now another Conservative councillor in Thurrock, John Cowell, has put up UKIP posters in his shop windows and told people to vote for the UKIP candidate, Tim Aker.  Councillor Cowell is not seeking re-election this year but is considering returning to politics under the UKIP banner, which is great news.

The Conservative Party have told Your Thurrock that Councillor Cowell has left the party which makes it 5 councillors the Tories have lost in Thurrock.
