Councillor David Potts defects to UKIP

The former leader of the Conservative group on South Tyneside Council has defected to UKIP and given both barrels to the "spineless prime minister".

Councillor David Potts said:
The Conservative Party is no longer the party I once loved. Modern Tories have sold our country down the river, and seem obsessed with being entirely consumed, both socially and economically, by the European machine.

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.

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.

There are still a lot of good people in the Conservative Party, and I urge them to join me in crossing the floor, so that we may stand up for our true beliefs.
