Another Tory defection: Janice Small

Former Conservative PPC for Batley & Spen in Yorkshire, Janice Small, has defected to UKIP.

UKIP didn't field a candidate against her in the last election because she was deemed to be sufficiently eurosceptic to be given a free run against the europhile Labour candidate.

Small says that she was taken in by David Camoron's claims to be eurosceptic and has since realised that actually he was a raging europhile all along so she has left the Conservative & ٨European Unionist Party and joined UKIP.

Small is also a writer on Con Home (although I suspect not for much longer) and a director of Conservative Action for Electoral Reform (again, I suspect not for much longer).
